Thanks for all the responses, sorry it took me so long to write back but the computer was being a pain and wouldn't let me log in for some reason. First of all, the octos are separated by a solid divider that they cannot cross. They are fed well and seem to be happy. They are still alive (this makes me happy as my boss who is actually the one keeping them is in the Virgin Islands right now and has been since we got them) So far have had no problems with them other than the filter we ordered for thier tank is being a pain and not working. DO not worry, they have a filter, we just ordered a better one. They were purchased from the NRCC and are very well adjusted to people. After they were placed in the tank they came out to explore and have not hidden since even though they have plenty of places to hide. I got to see one play in his sand the other day but he was just teasing me and swam away soon after. I am having some issues with the smaller of the two as he will only eat everyother day. He is acting alright otherwise and will always eat the shrimp within two days, so I guess I'll just keep an eye on him.
