mine didnt eat for the first couple of days at first but then he came around. at first i fed him things smaller then him. now he eats crabs that are bigger than he is. i take the claws off if there bigger just to er on the side of caution. dont worry he'll come around. and congrats on a new octo.

Yes, small hermit crabs would be good and your LFS probably stocks them. You could also try a small piece of frozen shrimp, thawed of course.

Have a look at the Journals and Photos forum, the thread at the top called List of Our Octopuses - you'll find names of present and past octos and maybe that will inspire you!
