Hi all, it's been a while since I've had anything to post :sad: largely due to the aquarium closure and recent demolition. In the first pic the octopus tank was the large ] one in the middle of the blue wall.

However all is not lost, we have still a few wee tanks (Red Sea Max) and in one we had Mr Grumpy an Octopus huttoni who now turns out to be Mrs Grumpy! I hasten to add I did not name her!

Nice to hear from you again!

Must have been sad to see the old aquarium go. Is a new aquarium still in the works?

Hi all,

yes there is a new aquarium in the works..........I think.......not sure really......University says it's on the "priority build list" only none of us know what that means! So we muddle on! Anyway, the eggs have eyed up....yay. Interesting cos Mrs Grumpy has been on her own for about 4 months! we're hoping to keep them in a kreisal tank when they hatch......but this is a small egg species.....so who knows what will happen, watch this space!
