Just got this little guy delivered today! It seems to be missing the ends of 2-3 arms, but that doesn't seem to stop him from exploring during acclimation. I hope he grows into a bigger hummelincki :biggrin2:

It would be very uncommon to get O. hummelincki or O. briareus without missing arm tips, especially if they are young. They hunt by sticking their arm tips into the rocks to see what they can scare out.

Oh I didn’t know that! He is doing really well, he’s been eating small hermit crabs and ghost shrimp today and has been exploring every inch of the tank. I’ll post a video later on!
