:cry: I didn't see Baby A at all today, so I kind of knew she was probably dead. Tonight after the kids went to bed, I started pulling up all the live rock. Her little body just floated up... We will bury her tomorrow. I had her 9 1/2 months, much longer than I thought I would. The boys look fine and are still eating.

Baby A was my favorite, she will be missed in this household...

So sorry for your loss. :sad: You had Baby A a long time, as long as we have many of our octopuses. She was a champion egg layer and her babies have traveled far. Her children will be the breeding stock for the NRCC, no small accomplishment.

RIP Baby A :cuttle: :cuttlezz: :angelpus:

:cuttlego: The title was enough to make me sad. Baby A was a vicarious favorite for a lot of us. Thanks for sharing her keeping.
