Octopus

Scientific name...................Octopus briareus

Size.................Usually about 8-14"" legs spread. Head size about 1.5-2"". Full grown about 2-3"" head size. All the octopus we get here will be happy in a 50 gallon tank or less.

Important Notes............Octopus do very well here and I've had tanks with 20-30 for over a month and have not lost one. But in shipping they are very sensitive and will sometimes ink or just die before arriving. Also they are very sensitive to new water and need a VERY slow one to two hour acculamtion. We will replace the octopus if we get a picture of the DOA. Since we do not charge shipping we can not cover that.

Reef safe.................Not reef safe. Love to eat crustaceans and small fish.

Diet...........Will eat just about everything in your tank. Larger fish usually OK

Compatibility.............Best in a sealed (they will climb out) tank by themselves. Make great pets and are very hardy. Acclimate very slowly. Sensitive to some synthetic salts.

How Common to this area.............Usually have them in stock Oct to May. The rest of the year they are hard to get.

    The octopus survived shipping even after inking in the bag. Eating great, beautiful color changing, very curious to check out new things in the tank.
    Great buy!
