my octo hasn't looked good for the last week and i sort of new the end was near. she came out last night and had really bad corkscrew and was twitching a lot. she could barely move it seemed like. i could really tell she was struggling. i got really attached to her. i woke up this morning and she had died in the night. i will miss her.:cry:

Sorry to hear that FishKid.

You didn't have your octopus very long, and it might be old age, but you need to test the water thoroughly and make sure all the parameters were OK. You need to do this in case you want to get another octopus.

Sorry to hear, as said above, make sure everything with your system is A OK before you get another? Do you plan on getting another?
