Hi all,

Here's a new Ollie pic, showing his best purple.

Ollie has been busy recently, stealing the cleaning magnet and hiding it. Then he lets just enough of the magnet peek out from behind the live rock to tempt me to grab it. When I try, he yanks it back!

Hi all,

Ollie started doing these lovely purple colors, ranging from lavender to magenta to blue purple, a few months ago. I especially like the effect when he makes his suckers orange!

As to Colin's question, I got Ollie at the beginning of March of this year. As far as I can tell, he was about 3 months old. I remember him being very small, under three inches from top of mantle to tip of arm. This would make him 6 1/2 to 7 months old now. I think he's nearly full adult size (but it's harder to measure his size than I thought it would be, because he can expand or contract himself!) His mantle is about 5
inches, and his arms over a foot long.

I always find him fun to watch!

Nancy
