he died like 7 hours after acclimation, I think its because he inked in the bucket while he was acclimating and got stress plus my salt level was a little low. But now i am getting a dwarf octopus, does any 1 know about them?:bugout:

Make sure your water parameters are good before you get another octopus. A dwarf octopus will probably be nocturnal Be sure you have some small crabs to feed him with.

You really need to get another kind of food because ghost shrimps aren't very nourishing. How about some hermit crabs? Small pieces of thawed frozen shrimp? Maybe small snails. You're right in feeding him some live food, but he needs some variety in his foods and ghost shrimp aren't the best thing to feed him.
