The opening of a new octopus exhibit scheduled for today at the SeaLife Aquarium at Legloand in Carlsbad was postponed for a few days because the finicky octopi didn't like their new digs, according to aquarium officials.
Octopus Garden, named after the Beatles song, will be an interactive exhibit featuring cephalopods, cuttlefish and nautilus.
The squishy creatures are sensitive to water and temperature conditions, so workers will try to adjust the tank so it's more amenable to the denizens.
"Binkys for Inkies," a promotion set for today in which children are admitted free if they turn in a pacifier for recycling, will be honored.
