Philip at KP Aquatics has done it for me again!!! Two weeks ago, I ordered a batch of live rock to cycle our bio cube with. I got a note from him right away asking if I would like the little Briareus he had in stock. DUH!!! The little one has been here for two full weeks now. It is still very shy, but comes out in the evenings and is stick feeding. I’m not sure if it’s male or female yet, but I have settled on another name inspired by Star Trek. This is Kestra!

Currently, Kestra is in our 40 gallon tall “Florida Keys” tank. Everything in this tank has been collected from KP Aquatics- The live rock, all of the animals, corals, algaes and of course, the octopus. We are super excited to have a tank that we know where everything came from, our own little piece of the Keys. Eventually, when Kestra is bigger and Anya has passed on, it will make the move to the bigger tank. But, I’m really liking how this tank looks right now!
