Hello again. My new baby octopus is dead. I have no idea why. My water looks perfect. No ammonia, ph-8.3, sal.-1.026, temp-70deg. This evening he was out and messing around at the top of the tank. I thought he was acting strange, but since I have never really had an octo, I thought it was normal. Anyway about an hour later he was dead. I got him on Thursday and since then I put three hermits in there. I searched the tank and there are two left. He also ate one peice of thawed shrimp. I cant think of anything I did wrong, other than when I thawed the shrimp out I ran it under hot water. Surely that wouldn't have killed him. Can anyone tell me what on earth I did wrong.
