That should be fine, how much aeration does your tank have right now? Whats your current pH?
Not sure where you are located, but you’re in Michigan are usually don’t order octopuses during the winter months. Too much chance that they will suffer deep cold as they are traveling around.Well my intention was to start a new journal about my new octopus. Unfortunately I did not even have my new friend for 2 days. When he arrived at my place he seemed to be pretty week so he didnt even hold on to the bag. The water temperature of the bag seemed to be very low. Later I noticed that he couldnt hardly move his tentacles. About one hour ago he had passed away.
Now I wonder whether its maybe better to let them live where they are born . Further its a lot of money that could be spend otherwise. What do you think?
Eventually its the best to get a local octo species with a short transportation time.
I do not disagree! I appreciate the folks here who have been brave enough to take on this amazing hobby. It's an incredibly daunting task. Never tried it myself.Now I wonder whether its maybe better to let them live where they are born . Further its a lot of money that could be spend otherwise. What do you think?
