Yesterday, I noticed someone in my household, although noone is admitting to it but it could be a little female tiny 6 year old person who resides here, must have put a clam shell that was found on the beach in Ink's tank. This morning, I see Ink has moved back into his cave by the front of the tank and has the shell as his door! Also I see the serpent star is resting nearby. Someone was mentioning the relationship with the starfish and octopi's. There definately is one here!!

Last time in Mexico, I came across an octopus using two clam shells as a temporary shelter...very creative!
Ink looks like he's doing great!

Well, Ink finally has his privacy!

I've seen other pics of octopuses and their doors, but Ink may be the first Tonmo octopus who's decided to do some home improvement and add a door.
