Ink has a Cataract??

I was checking up on Ink today. She hasn't been out in a few days, so I offered her a crab which she rejected. Later, I saw she had come out and had eaten the crab, but the new discovery is her left eye is white. I observed her rubbing it with her arm. Is this a cataract? Do Octopus's suffer from cataracts as seasenance (?) kicks in?

Oh Dear, Carol, Sorry about this :cry: :cry: :cry: I don't know if it's a cateract as such but that milkiness is the first sign of the downward spiral :frown: :cry: :frown: :cry:

Well, the same thing happened to zoidberg before he died and L S's cuttlefish is also having the same problem. So I guess the end is nearing. :frown:
:frown: :frown: I was afraid of that... On a possative note, had an encounter with Lil Pumpkin tonight! He grabbed my finger and tried to pull me into the tank!! Amazing the strength something so small has!!
