So, guess what?!?!?!?!?!
HE ATE FROZEN!!!!!!!!:party::party::cheers::!:
So, we got into the custom of me opening his tank which would make him get very active. Then I would hold the snail/hermit a few inches from him and just sit. After a few minutes I would place it [every time] on the same rock. This time, I took an empty snail shell and stuffed it with defrosted krill. I put it a few inches from him and he actually grabbed it this time but i pulled away [he grabbed my finger as well]. Then I placed it on the rock, took my hand out, and put the lid back on. He ate about 75% of the shrimp and mainly left legs and other small connective tissue [so he ate mostly meat!]
Im pretty excited since it was just starting to cost me [first I fed him one of my tanks whole clean up crew and I was just startnig to buy more!] Now I will only do so occasionally and let him finish off the clean up crew of the tank he is going into. He is doing really well and I think he has grown

Yes, the stuffed snail shell is an idea to pass on!

Nice pics, fine little octopus!

Ya,
im just hoping that he lives a long healthy life with me. It seems like every few threads there is one of an octopus dieing.... are they all coming from the same place? I think this might be something to consider as a cause of all the recent octo deaths. Maybe Im crazy but it seems like there is a lot lately... or I could just be crazy and its a random streak of bad luck.
just something to consider
