i have had crazy carl in my octo tank for about 7 months now. he is pry about 9 months old. he is getting pretty big. i hand feed him every day and even for a nocturnal species he comes out in the day about 4-7 hours every day and out all night. i have some 60 second videos of him but i dont know how to load them on here. he is rather large now and has a rather destinctive personality. even for my first octo. if you have any questions about him let me know please or any advice on toys or way to work his mind mentally. his mantle length is about 4 inches long and arms are about 18 inches give or take and inch either way. all of my friends love him but the octo tank is my favorite for sure it is also the head board of my queen sized bed. not bad for a 19 year old jeweler.
