Was all excited as my first octopus was shipped from the keys yesterday and I picked it up this morning, acclimated it by drip method till there was 100% tank water added, cut open the mesh bag it was in and let it float down to the bottom. It has been going on 10 hours and it hasn't moved. I can see what I would call veins pumping in its legs, but other than that there is no movement. Guess I am out $80. Could have just given it to a panhandler or something. Don't know if I would want to try another this being my first time and getting burned. Guess it happens.
