This morning, I went to check on Lil P and he was gone. :frown: I had done a waterchange yesterday just to be sure on water quality. I knew he was dieing as I've seen that look many times in the past. I am glad he didnot linger like Ink did. I took a final picture so you can see how tiny he stayed. When I took him out , it really hit me how little growth he's had.

Have some great pictures and memories of Lil P. So now I will be returning to the sea 3 of my octopuses.

:frown: So sorry, Carol. :frown: How old was Lil' P, and why so small? Ashi is that big already and he's just 5 or 6 months old. Wait.... Wasn't Lil' P a sibling?

Carol,

I'm so sorry to hear this. I guess so many baby octos are born to each mother, some of them just don't survive. You gave him a good life.

I'm also happy for you that Inklet is doing so well.
