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

Important Notes............Octopus do very well here and I've had tanks with several 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 acclamation. 

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. 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!
