Hello all! My baby octo came today and all is well! I am not sure if its a he or a she. But we'll call it a him for now. He has all of his tentacles but one or two of them are a little shorter. He didnt ink at all with acclimation. After putting him in the tank we offered him some peeled shrimp hand fed. He took a bit to investigate it but then decided he would just nibble a few times. He then carried it with him into a rock he went into and shortly afterward nicely placed it back out on the sand. He stayed out for quite awhile, I was surprised. I have pictures and if I can figure out how to attach them I will. Now time to work on the name... still..... I will keep you posted on my new journey into octo-momhood!
