See no. 29 on the link below for the basics on the octopus. They require specialized care, including a sealed specimen tank to avoid escape. They need to be isolated because they will attack and eat just about any fish or crustacean you put in the tank. Serious filtration like a well-designed, over-built skimmer is essential, because they need excellent water quality at all times, and one octopus can produce triple the amount of waste as a fish of comparative size! The use of skimming and activated carbon can also help reduce the risk of death from inking if it happens (and it does happen). Beyond that, tell me exactly what you would like to know and I'll see if I can help you:

Hello!

What would you like to know about them? What kind are you looking for information for?

I used to be with the Seattle Aquarium so if you email me at greenvegan@hotmail.com, we could talk.

Smile Anne
