I don't have any experience in this area, but here is a quote :
“Experienced aquarists know that when they transport a captured octopus, it will survive much better if moved in just a small amount of cold water in a big plastic bag filled with pure oxygen.

I put two Clams in the aquarium yesterday. This morning one was wide open and empty. Clarry had drilled a hole through the shell.

that's great! We've had a thread or two on octo-drilled holes in clam shells like this. Nice find :thumbsup:

Problem!
1. Iris abandoned her shell home she has had for a week and dug a cave under one of the rocks.
2. Iris has turned white or very light gray and has taken strange positions in the cave.
What does this mean?
I too have noticed this taking strange positions in conjunction with pale coloring-in my experience it means the octopus is no longer in the right mind and is dying:cry3: 💔
i have also seen digging deep into the substrate under a rock but only by 1 or 2 octos so i can't speak much to that.
