Squishy's gone


Jun 30, 2003
Well, we had him 8months to the day, judging by my wifes post here on tonmo the day we got him. I checked all my water parameters last night just to be sure, but everything checked out ok, so I assume it was just old age. :cry:

It'll probably be a couple months before we order our next octo. The
urge to use squishy's tank for other critters will be strong, but we have lots of pics of him to remind us of how cool he was. That'll keep the urge to a minimum.

Sorry to hear that Squishy has passed away. I remember the post when you got him. Wish our octopuses had longer lifespans.

RIP Squishy
