My octo bought from a LFS three months ago as a baby with maybe at 1/2" mantle has now blossomed into a 4" specimen (though we're not quite sure what kind it is). He has stopped eating and I noticed there was a sore on his mantle and on one of his suckers. I tested the water parameters and noted that the salinity was a little low at 1.023 so I've been slowly raising it again. But other than that, am not sure why he would stop eating and have these sores.
