Has anyone noticed a decrease in interaction as they are aging? Spike has become content to only seek me out when he wants food. He's huge. Size of a Grapefruit curled up. He swims across the tank. He really should be in a bigger tank, like a 100 gal. I did not expect him to reach the size that he has.

Mr. O. is still very interactive--he'll grab on to me even if he has just eaten (or in some cases if he still is). Mr. Octopus is much smaller than Spike, though, perhaps the size of a small orange curled up.

I'de say that Sla'neesh is still very interactive. He's always up for a game of "tug o war". Although lately he's been getting into rearranging the rock work more than ever. I'm blaming the fact that he watches all those home improvement shows with my wife all day!:lol:

Well ,I am sad to say that Stretch has passed on.I arrived home from work yesterday to find the tank cloudy (with ink I presume) and my worst fears where true ,Stretch was dead.There was a definate lack of interaction and activity the last month or so. Thank you all for your help and advice as this was my first octo.

RIP Stretch :angelpus:

Stretch was one of Zyan Silver's bimacs and was almost a year old.

Sorry for your loss - Stretch lived with you for a long time.

Mr. Octopus was celebrating his first birthday, so that means that all of Zyan's bimacs had a birthday.

Who's left, other than Mr. Octopus?
