Some pictures of Anya’s last days. I was really amazed, because she spent her last two days right out in the open wanting attention from us all. I felt very lucky that she wanted to spend time with us! She spent a lot of time playing with my fingers and sitting in my hand, and also watching the dogs from her perch up high in the tank.

@sedna I'm sorry to hear about Anya's eggs. I am happy that you were able to have a positive last few days with her and that you were able to take some photos and document some autophagy and egg laying! Always fun to have another learning opportunity.

@whitewhale2003 the type of octopus that will be comfy in your tank is mostly dependent on what temperature you keep your tank at, and what other critters you have living in the tank. The tank shape and volume seem to be a good fit for any medium sized octopus or smaller (think around the size of a larger O. Bimaculoides)
