Octopuses enjoy eating crawfish. Some experts worry about feeding too many crawfish, because they come from a freshwater environment,
Is this the same octopus you had in a large tank in the spring?
You don't tell us enough about the food you're trying to feed. I assume at least some of it is live, but what about the shrimp? If it is not live, fresh or freshly thawed good quality frozen shrimp, your octopus may not acccept it.
You might try a mussel, but they make the tank dirty, so don't leave them in too long. Is the size appropriate? Fiddler crabs are usually bigger than hermits.
the only live food was hermit crabs, snails and the crayfish. Shrimp was freshly thawed that i purchased from seafood store. What about green crabs? their body is size of quarter, some half dollar. They may Be too big though. Thanks Nancy
Hi I am sad to say that I have not seen Octo in about 4-5 days when I used to see him daily. I don't know if she laid eggs, went into senanance or died. I think I know where her den is but it's under a bunch of rocks and I can't see inside it. How long do you wait before you look for them? Or do you? I have a red light on it for night viewing and I have been checking at all different hrs. Thanks for your help
