I used to have Ollie's tank next to my TV in my room, since I have moved I have now set up my new! and definatly IMPROVED tank in front of my TV, I used to notice that Ollie would watch TV, most likely out of curiosity, and becasue she liked the interaction, much like us. Has anyone ever noticed such behavior in their own Octi or cuttles?

Good question! The most recent octo owner to notice octo TV watching was Carol (corw314), who reported that G2 may have been watching TV. I asked the question in an earlier post and got several reports of octo TV watching. They seem to like cartoons and sports the best!

Well, I just turned my Octo tank into a cuttle tank, so I will not get to try that water proof remote deal :frown:
