This website has helped me so much in my octopus journey, so I made an account! I currently have a Caribbean dwarf octopus named Buddy who’s either O. mercatoris or O. Joubini I hear they get mixed up a lot. Also have a question for the community while I’m hear! Buddy used to be somewhat active and explore the tank at night and eat live crabs. She winded up laying eggs and about 30-40 baby octopus were once in the tank about 2 months ago but unfortunately I believe all of them have passed sadly. But now ever since Buddy laid eggs she hasn’t been hunting for any live food in the tank and only eats small nibbles of thawed shrimp and doesn’t come out of her den at all besides a few tentacles and I was wondering if any one had any tips for how to get her back exploring the tank so I can try to play with her or just have a positive interaction with her. Any help is much appreciated thank you!
