My good friend Flubber has passed away. I used to care for this little guy (an O. vulgaris) at aquatopia.
when I quit there, I dropped in every now and then to see how he was doing (really loved the little guy)
cause of death is somewhat unclear to me. I heard 2 different stories. either he crawled up the filteroutlet, or he had inked. the head aquarist wasn't around, so I hope to get details asap.
I'm kinda mad now because it was a great animal, who really interacted with people and because he still had his whole life in front of him. (in octopus years that is, I'm guessing he had 6 months to a year left)
it's flubber in the pic by the way
