Thanks, yeah I'm going in with the mindset that everything else in my tank is supposed to be potential food for my octopus. It's just that she only went for the biggest and most expensive fish I have."It works 'til it doesn't" is always what we say about mixing fish and cephalopods. Sorry for your loss, it's a hard way to go. At least your octopus is doing well!
I hope so! I suppose she could be a different nocturnal species, and taking longer to adjust to the tank, hence the arm curling and showing of suckers.It's interesting - I don't think senescence goes "on and off" like that. It might be hard to isolate the cause here given all the tank activity... but it might not be senescence!
Thanks! Their appetite is also very different. My previous algae octopus could eat twice a day if I would feed her. The current girl eats once every 1~2 days and not much each meal.Your posts are great, and make me feel lazy! I agree that you have a nocturnal species and not an algae octopus. They are so difficult to ID, but your notes on behavior point to something nocturnal.
