Man, sorry to hear about the crashed tank. Makes me wonder why I even bothered setting up a 180. A load of cash, time and effort, all for the inevitable... one day, it will die. From a tank crash or other means but for sure, it will come to an end. Maybe I should have saved the spent money for a yearly trip to the tropics. Hey, there's an idea, I hear the coral reefs can even successfully keep a Moorish Idol!!!!!

You can. Whether or not you should may be a different story. Depends on the corals kept. Many of them are very stingy. Imagine living surrounded by rose bushes and sticker patches everywhere you go.

Hey can anyone tell me if that octopus was IDed???
He's such a cool specimen and from the posts I read, someone had suggested an ID and it wasn't true so I'm wondering if anyone figured out what it is? I'd love to know!

It was an Octopus briareus, Carribean Reef Octopus.

I don't think so. I know for sure the reef stores I go to received an Indo and Bali shipment when I bought the corals and that's where that Octopus came from, never had/bought any shipment from the Carribean.

My O. briareus:






The blue glow and the webbing is a dead giveaway.

Most likely they got a shipment of live rock from Florida and it worked its way through their system and ended up hitching a ride home with you in a coral from the other side of the world.

No need to apologize at all. I'm obsessed with them so I pick up a lot of info. It's nice to be able to pass it on.
