Okay I am odering my next octo from carribean creturs(sp) and last time i had my octgo it just got scared when i came up to look at him he would just run away he never stoped I was just wondering if anybody has anything to say about this??
Let me add to what Greg suggested - Did you spend time sitting by the tank, even if your octo wasn't out, so he became familiar with you? And were you careful to approach slowly, from the same direction each time, so as not to startle him? Those actions do make a difference.
