    So true, honestly would have been best for me to be ignorant of the entire situation.

    Aqua Mart just listed a brown Ocotopus on their livestock that just came in.

    I saw, they call it the wonderpus lol. I really want the long tentacle Caribbean and still have to figure out how to escape proof a tank so it won't be for a while if I am able to do it

    Would you have "enrichments" for them like the zoo does? Those little buggers are so smart, I'd be afraid they'd get bored, lol. I saw a video where they put one in a container, screwed the lid down, and the octopus unscrewed it to get out.

    What about using a lid like many people use on reptile aquariums. They are screen lids and have brackets that snap in. Just a thought.

    Yeah I have been finding that lots of caves and hiding places along with toys really helps keep them happy.

    I saw a tank that's they put turf in the hood and it prevented it's suction cup things from sticking on to anything because it could not trapn the air in side the suction cup thingys to climb out. On another note here at the beach there are signs that say" do not take the octopus " lol

    Every once awhile a thread pops up on Reef Central with theories of what it's like to die by your own blue ring's bite. One sort of funny theory was since the venom causes paralysis you're suffocating, and you know your suffocating, but there's nothing you can do about it.

    I want one like this... Including the voice. I think it's cool that it finds shells to hide in.
