That bottle video was great, even though he didn't do what you wanted. So he can get small enough to go into the bottle as well. Thats sweet, maybe next time he will.

Yeah I was hoping he would demonstrate the octopus' ability to slip into small places. I've made many attempts but he's already figured out he doesn't have to in order to get the prize inside. He'll tug on the shell for a while trying to get it out, but loses interest after all the meat's gone.

One neat trick he's learned is that when he removes the mag-float from the inside I come running. He won't pull it off the glass if I'm standing there, but if I walk away for a few minutes I hear the part on the outside fall and hit the floor. I come back, retrieve the other piece from him, stick it back on the glass. Stand there and watch... he acts innocent. I walk away again... and the process repeats itself.

I can't believe the small sizes of them and the colors are beautiful. The feeding video is great!

Ha, Awesome pics/vids!

Since they are so curious, have you had any casualties with them getting into your overflows or powerheads?

I used the rough side of a velcro strip on the top of the tank to deter it from climbing over. It scratches the absolute crap out of my arms. It worked for a while but since Kalypso's arms are like 14" now he just reaches over and pulls himself over when I have the screen open. Otherwise it works just fine as long as I replace the tape ever so often.
Does the duct tape and mesh screen take away asthetics from the tank or is it difficult to see it?
