he just keeps hiding and he turn green when I put the rock and water in a bucket 'he fell out of the rock and started to crawl up the bucket . but when i put the rock back he went thereMizu said:You purchased an EBAY octo from Dana right?
Octopus briareus. Tropical Nocturnal Octo.
I used fiddlers purchased online to feed my octo.
Might try some red LEDS to get him more active during the day
and i bet you hes out plenty and he hides so well you cant see him
Megas used to be on a rock right next to the front of the tank and i would look all over for him before he would move and id spot him.
How is the little guy
did Dana ship him right
did he ink
I just bought a 55 tank setup with Light and hoods and filter . A live rock and a tower with holes . I will also put a pvc pipe in there soon so it will be like a cave . more live rock is comming this next weekcthulhu77 said:Welcome to Tonmo! If you could give us some of the features of your tank set up, ie: size, filtration, lighting, etc...we could help you a lot easier...it sounds like your normal octopus behaviour to hide though, until they get used to you.
Be sure to read the Ceph Care sheets by Nancy and Colin here on Tonmo.com, the articles will clear up a lot for you initially.
I use r/o water and aronite sand with live rock . one partner was right I removed the Damsels because the octopus was threatend when he came out he released someting that floated to the top but not sure if this was ink .it was light color . but the damsels are out and I had to kill them because I only use them as test fish Yes I have been in saltwater for years , but must admit I am brand new to this so thanks for all the helpcuttlegirl said:I am sure you are experienced with salt water tanks since you have six. But there is no way your tank has cycled in 2 weeks. Octopus produce a lot of waste (because they eat a lot!) and this will affect your tank chemistry. You need to get nitrate, nitrite and ammonia as close to zero as possible because octopus are very sensitive. Are you using RO/DI water?
