Harlie died to day. I tried to get her to eat and she ate two crabs earlier, but then stopped eating altogether.

Sorry Bill :sad: -- to be expected after laying eggs. This was an interesting project for sure.

What are your plans for the tank now?

I have another dwarf octopus. This one, Ellen, I hope it is a female, is very similar but not quite the same as Harlie. Ellen has a larger Web and bumps on the mantel. Ellen also inks with the slightest disturbance.
Ellen is very shy, just like Harlie, but I'll try to get some pictures

I am cycling a Red Sea 350 and hopefully will get a larger diurnal octopus in a couple of months.
