can anyone help. today and twice before during the drip line process my new octos started showing stress arm curling fast movements and then heavy breathing then dying w/in 20 mins.today it happend again the same thing but this time i used a new critter carrierw/liverock and i used the water from a tank that alresdy houses a brierius that is doing fine. i was going to keep them in the same tank w/a divider i put in.i had the drip line going at a drip a second and i watch the temp. could it be the ph. making them stress so bad that it kills them? i have a bi-pedal that bearly made it 2 weeks ago the same problem. i was driping him into my past on bimac tank. he lived about 14 months. but i almost lost the bi-pedal but hes ok now but came very close to losing him also. can anyone help me out? if i cant figure this problem out ill have to give up octo keeping to be fair to them.
