They are small eggs. I loved this octo to. She's awesome. Thanks.Nancy;101116 said:There's nothing to worry about and nothing you really have to do, especially if your octopus laid small eggs. You can watch them and give us an update. Usually they take 4-6 weeks to hatch. You can continue offering the mother food - she may or may not accept it, or will eat only at times.
You can't hope to raise the little small-egg hatchlings, but you could try if your octo turns out to be a species that lays large eggs. You thought she was a vulgaris, which is a small-egg species.
Unfortunately, your octopus will not live long afterwards.
Yes, i can see her. She has been eating, but she stays close to her egg's.Nancy;101126 said:Yes, it's a sad time for an octopus owner - and I think most of us do get attached to our octopuses. Just take of her, make her comfortable, and keep trying to offer food. Can you see her in her den?
