so zeus passed only 2 days after all of her eggs had hatched and she never got to try out her new tank either..
None of the little pods survived more than a day, most within hours. We saw some of them eat but we would leave for a coupla hours, and they would mysteriously disappear. We only had her for a few months and its been really hard to lose such an intelligent creature.

we are going to wait awhile before getting another one, but I think we will do our utmost to get a tank raised octo, it brings the variables down a bit as far as taking care of them..sigh

Hello Dominika,

So sorry to hear about Zeus passing on. That's the hard part about owning an octopus - I know we all wish they lived longer, because we enjoy keeping them so much.

Hope you will decide to get another eventually.

All the best,

Nancy
