I was catching OP to transfer to another tank and they turn clear and/or white as usual . I was thinking about it and I believe it is to camouflage themselves so they don’t get eaten if they were in the wild. Not my video but amazing how an octopus can be invisible! So OP trying to the same?

Interesting thought, I think you are right too. Being as close to transparent I’m water is way better then being deep red that’s for sure when trying to evade predators.
