I'm sorry Marla but octopus don't live very long. The species we get in NZ live for 2 years and that's a long time! 9 months is getting old for many species and the lesions can be the first signs of the end. Octopus don't seem to get skin parasites much although you can't rule it out . Your octopus could live for some time yet, the lesions don't seem to slow them down much. How is his appetite? At the end of his life he'll probably stop eating altogether.marla said:The octopus is about 9 months old..that I think is not so old..also because the lesions starts about 3 months ago.
So what about skin parassite?
