Today, went shopping and my daughtor wanted something out of those money wasting machines, where you get something in the plastic thing!

Brain Storm!!:idea:

Got a large fiddler crab, stuffed it in the container, filled it with some water so the crab would face down, and put it in Ink's tank! Took him about 1/2 hour, but at one point he had the container wedged by some coral by the bottom! I finally had to loosen the top alittle, and last I looked, he was happily eating the crab! I MISSED IT!!! :bugout: Wonder who outsmarted who?????

Will have to try again next feeding!

thats a cool idea...
id try that again, especially since the octo can see the crab... why not try pircing a few holes in the egg to let the smell of crab waft out? That might make him try harder...

if you did this everyday im sure it would get figured out!

nice pics too :smile:
