Yeah it is sad. Though a short time I greatly enjoyed her.
On the other side- I'm glad to say I feel confident in my ceph care abilities now. It was good hands on learning.
Currently looking into either a tank raised cuttlefish or another octopus. The advantage of the cuttlefish is I'll be able to know the age.
Will see.
Sorta feels like a phoenix experience- both sadness for the end and exciting for the next step.

So encouraged by your perseverance! You are doing great, despite the setback, you handled this well. Some of our older members have offered some keen insights on the grit required in order to keep cephs. Looking forward to your next adventure... I'm sure some will go better, and some will go worse, than this one.
