You need to make sure you stay on top of the food situation for your little octopus, now that most of the clams a What other food do you have (I'm sure Octopets will give you a refund, so send them an email.) Pick up a few good quality frozen shrimp and try offering pieces of thawed frozen shrimp.
Here is the place that sells fiddler crabs -I've ordered a lot from them in the past: Aquaculturestore
Yes I am veary suprised octopets said they would send a refund I am not sure ware to go because aquaculturestore sells 1 inch shrimp, 1/4 inch shrimp, and 1 inch fiddler crabs I had Know luck with fiddlers they died last time. or i can try divertom.com and get crabs and hermit crabs from my octopus's natrul invirment. my octopus only eats the larger clams.
Clownfish, you need to plan ahead for food - your octo may eat a lot and you need to have plenty of food on hand. With the holiday coming up, it would be late next week before a shipment could arrive, unless you overnight it and even then it might be Tuesday or Wednesday.
Be sure you buy the frozen shrimp soon - you don't know whether your octo will take frozen food yet, do you? You could order from Toms or get the fiddler crabs from the site I just gave you. If you search on fiddler crabs on Tonmo, you'll find the specific instructions I gave you for keeping fiddler crabs.
Your lfs should be able to provide some snails and hermit crabs. Also, some people have used frozen krill as a food -available at the lfs.
