wow! he is great!!! cant wait to here mor about him... btw since you have owned octos before, how do you acclimate them cause i cant find that but i know everything else... mine should be here soon

I use the same thing for all my fish and invertebrates, which is the drip method. I haven't lost anything yet that I've brought back from the ocean or the local fish store.

You basically just run a length of small airline tubing from the main tank to the bucket and start the flow, then tie a knot in the tubing so that it drips slowly into the container.

This allows them to acclimate slowly to the temperature, ph, and salinity of the tank.

Please keep these wonderful pics coming! What kind of camera are you using? Flash or not?

Nancy

Sorry Nancy I just now saw this!

I am using a Canon Poweshot, I believe it's an A510 (not looking at it right now). Flash is set to OFF, using close-up (Macro) mode (the little flower symbol), and remembering to keep the camera as steady as I can when I press the shutter button (holding it with 2 hands helps, unless I have a toy in the other hand) :mrgreen:
