Great videos. I'd like to see a comparative study across cephs on this "fixed" behavior. Similar to Jennifer Mather's study, see which phenotypes fare better at this when different substrate is used.

Thanks Starvos, the article would be a good thing to examine for keeping some of the exotics but I was hoping for more of a preference definition for octos. I have noticed that the octos I keep will remove the argonite from their den areas if they choose a ground level den (and have two rather humerous videos of sand rearrangement by senescent animals) and was hoping for a substrate of choice type article. I might have to experiment with a bare bottom tank to see if an octopus would be out more offen without sand - you have definitely started me thinking :biggrin2:. I wonder if I can clear a section of Little Bit's tank :hmm:
