Hi all, good news and bad news. I got a new octopus about a week ago to replace Mimius and my 3 year old named it Shelly because it was hidden in a clam shell for transport. Unfortunately have not seen too much of the animal since its addition to the tank. It built a very secure den and does not seem to leave the den at all. A small amount of food has been accepted. Anyway, today the octopus attacked the feeding tongs and opened up her den in doing so. The end result...another octopus with eggs already laid in the den. Just posting so those that are interested can see the eggs. Unfortunate as I've only had this specimen for a week, however, there is no way to know the age of a specimen when they are brought in. Too bad they are not actively bred and available in Canada captive bred. Thanks.
