The LFS had it "by accident" so I got him. I did not bring him home as i wanted to come rearrange my live rock a little. I'll go pick him up tonight or tomorrow morning.

I have the new guy and Pen, so currently two octos. And this will be my seventh total.

I'm going to get him tomorrow. i just finished overhauling the tank, and I'll let it settle over night then I'll pick up the new one in the morning.

we are drip acclimating now. it has been about 30 mins so far.

Looks like a good healthy puss. I'm guessing a mantle length of 1.25" - 1.5"

I just gave it a 1/2 a shrimp tail while it was acclimating and it took it with gusto. Once it is done slurping it down I will release it into the tank, probable in about 30-45 minutes

I did see it is missing half his front right arm, but i think I saw some new growth.

Ok I released it into the tank. so far it just slowly crawled up the wall and now its just balled up in the top corner of the tank and is watching the world around it.

stay tuned for acclimation video....
