"Pulpo" is a truly great name. I had a stage name once (I was in a zoot suit) of "El Pulpo Grande". Not sure how correct the grammar is on that...

That's pretty good. I was thinking "Ocho" would make a good name for whenever I get around to keeping one, though I'm sure it has been used before. Perhaps "Junior" would be better, or maybe "Dale"...

Pulpo sounds fine!

When you've decided, let me know and I'll put the name in the List of Our Octopuses.

Ok Pulpo it is.

I haven't seen him much since he got in his new home. There is a lot of rock and other hiding places. The last I saw him he was on the left back side of the tank but didn't see him once yesterday but then I worked too late last nite to see the tank with the lights on. Is there a rule of thumb as to where he might be? Bottom? top? I will keep looking. (from the outside, no flipping rocks)

Chip (and Pulpo) :wink:
