Hey dutchcourage!!! Welcome to TONMO.com! These intros get by me sometimes... I'm glad you've joined our community!

That's a nice looking octo you've got. What was it doing as it climbed the tank there? Anything in particular? Looked like it was busy at something but I couldn't spot the behavior.

Welcome again!

Thanks Tonmo for the welcome and for this wonderfull site you have created! I cant believe how hard it is to get good info on octopus in the home aquaruim!

I think when i filmed that my octo had a mouth full of shrimp and kept seeing his reflection in the glass and it spooked him a little:lol:.He was still new to his tank about 5 days and kinda sketchy:shock:

unless he's biting the bullet and being humorous (which wins double points) i'll wager the guess that it's removed at least a generation....

the brits weren't exactly being magnanimous with that phrase....

Hi dutchcourage,

Welcome to the site and glad you find our information useful. :welcome:

You have a nice looking octopus. Many aculeatus are on the market now, so that could very well be what you have. A bimac is a good choice, too, and we'll be looking forward to more pics when he arrives!

You're not alone in being from Texas. There are several of us here in the Dallas area, a few from Houston, and others scattered about the state.

Did you attend the MACNA convention which I believe was this weekend in Houston?

Anyway, a warm welcome from a fellow Texan!

Nancy
