What should I name my octo? Tanks been cycling for almost a month (thanks again BOE :notworth: ) and have ordered 60 pounds of live sand and 45 pounds of live rock (the rest I'll buy at the LFS or just take from my seahorse tank). He should arrive in two months or so..... :biggrin2:

The octo's got a 3-4" mantle and 8" arms. The octo also had little brownish black dots on it. Anyone have a guess what it could be? LFS owner thinks it's a bimac. :roll:

Those arms seem a bit long for a bimac - but the real way to tell a bimac is the eyespot with the unbroken chain. It's really hard to identify an octopus from a description - difficult enough with a photo!

Didn't get any name suggestions so I picked some out of some Stephen King books. If anyone still has some suggestions, post them here. :smile:

People pick all sorts of names - human names (Alice), funny names (Rummler), historical names (Spartacus). unusual names (The Agent).

What are the ones your considering? Maybe they'd give us some ideas!

Just added it to the poll. :smile:

Rock hasn't arrived yet, I moved about 10 pounds from my 20 gallon, still about 25 left in there, don't want to move it all till I sell my seahorse. :frown:
