Hi, My octopus has recently stopped eating, and has made herself a pit in her tank. She moved all the sand and rocks and made her secret hideout and today I saw her move away from it for a min. and saw several strands with eggs covered on them. But the thing is, there isn't a male in the tank, so will the eggs die because they won't be fertilized? I have known she was girl since I got her, but I didn't know they layed eggs like this. The other thing I'm concerned about is whether she will ever eat again. I know that when Octopus have there fry they stop eating to take care of them and die so I don't know what is going to happen considering they can't be fertilized.Or can they?
