Have been worried that my octopus has not been eating.I have had him for nearly a week and despite havin feeder crabs in the tank he has refused to eat.Out of desperation I offered him 1/2 a frozen king prawn...and he nearly ripped my hand off for it:shock: .....should I continue to offer him crabs or just stick to frozen??

He wants shrimp, just keep giving him shrimp! Do you have a source for live shrimp? Some octopus have very specific preferences.
