Have you ever seen Octopus babies?

Well, now is your chance!



Just posting this in case anyone is interested. (The Reef Discussion Forum yields more views than the Ceph forum)
These guys hatched 7 days ago. They're about half a centimeter in length. They're eating Amphipods as of now.

Enjoy!

Very nice video. Amazing how tiny they are. And yes, hearing your own voice recorded is weird. The first time I heard my voice back I wanted a new one.

If you work on a lobster boat, sneaking up behind someone and pinching him is probably a joke that gets old real fast
