Well, I am home from hospital and my Bimac, Oswald is doing great. He would eat 3-4 crabs a day if I let him. He is very friendly and will always come out when I approach the tank. He really likes to play "tug of war" with my fingers or whatever is placed in the tank, ie. net tongs, bottle etc... Something very interesting happened yesterday. I was looking at the tank with the lights off and I saw what appeared to be a tiny octopus on the front glass. To my surprise, I have scooped up about 20 baby octopus and put the in a separate little tank. Before I received my octopus from Tonmo, I was sent an octopus from Aquarium Creations which was supposed to be a small O. Briareus. when I got it, it did not look like that species and it must have been an adult dwarf octopus and had babies. A week after I got him, I did not see her anymore and I though it had escaped. Must of went into the rock work and laid eggs, which jus hatched. Now, I collect them when the lights are off and they are attached to the front glass. When lights are on they are hiding. Can someone let me know how best to try and raise these little guys. I am going to the shore and getting newly hatched shore shrimp to feed them. What type of vessel is best to house them? Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated . Stay safe everyone. A few videos attached.
