One of the LFSs here dips the live rock in fresh water for a few moments, and claims that drives the mantis shrimp out into the open.

Jai,
Do you collect your own live rock? What other species of octopus are out here? I've only heard of the day and night ones. My tank won't be ready for much for about 2 more weeks, then I plan on going out tidepooling to get some stuff.
