I'm adding Rupert to the List of Our Octopuses (top of the Journals and Photos forum)!

I suspect that Rupert does come from Octopets but took the long way round to get to you.

Nice pics, too.

What sort of light do you over your octo tank? I have burgundy mushrooms in my little invertebrate tank and have been thinking of trying one in the larger tank.
