i know , im finally ok happy ith my oct, he was borign doing nothign for the longest time and now he still hides alot , but i get to see him atleast 2 or 3 times a day crawling around for about 5 minutes,

5 minutes dont seem like much , but compared to the nothign he was doing thats an improvement,
maybe by another month he wont be shy anymore

What a fine looking little bimac! See, he's coming around and is less shy.

You might try turning off your actinic lights and just leaving the regular fluorescent - you octo doesn't need bright light.

hey

hey nancy i though that actinic was su ppossed to not be as bright as regular is why i leave those on.

no the rock is marinerules rock , it looks like crap because of the flash but in reality it looks awesome espeacially when the actinics are on.

i like it this way cause im always building new rocks with caves holes ect for my octo.

best thing is i dont have to cure it , it didnt make my ph go up at all.

Any chance of elaborating on how you make your rocks?
