I finally got my Filosus from saltwaterfish.com! It was supposed to arrive yesterday morning but the flight was delayed or something. When I opened the bag he was all white and I was afraid that he was dead, but he looks like he's doing better.

I tried offering him a piece of shrimp. The first time he pulled it in stick and all. I was afraid that the pointy part of the stick would jab him so I pulled pretty hard and he let go of both =\
Second and third attempts he just pushed it away so I gave up. I guess I wouldn't want a meal after a long and stressful flight too.

Thanks =D So happy! He's been moving around his tank a lot and I just managed to feed him some thawed shrimp. He still did the same thing and held onto the stick but this time I just let him have it. He eventually tossed it away and began consuming the shrimp!

His mantle is about 3 inches long and the arms are about 4 inches long. It's kind of hard to know though because he hasn't stretched out for me yet. I'll update this if I can find out the exact measurements.

=P I'll try that the next time I feed him!

More pictures! I thought it was interesting when my brother asked where the beak was. We couldn't find it! So I assumed that there is a flap of skin that covers it or something.
