Octopus briareus. Tropical Nocturnal Octo.

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.

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.
