The thing that I did find out is that I wasn’t looking at my ammonia Wright my ammonia was at 0 the whole time I just wasn’t looking at it Wright :smile:


by the way I think I have annoyed my octopus enough by trying to play with him twice he actually is pretty social a couple minutes after he was set free in the tank he crawled on the glass for a wile then sat Wright in front of all the decorations and stared at the room about 2 hours later I put my hand in because i thought my octopus was stuck but then I tried to encourage him to wrap his tentacle around my finder and he did about 1 hour later i tried the same but lifted up the rock he was under and tried to play with him he flashed colors :rainbow: at me for the few minutes I tried to encourage him but he seemed pissed of that I woke him up and he just sat there until I put the rock down I feel a little bad about waking him up :oops: and I already am seeing a personality in him he is adventures and isn’t afraid to so his feelings I love this little fellow. He is so social coming from a wild octopus

I know how exciting it is to have a new octopus, but for his sake I would stop disturbing his environment and give him a chance to rest and recoup from his journey! Less chance of stressing him more!!!
