octopus are escaped artists and will escape through any hole in the aquarium lid. I don't think many people keep them

Yes the octopus is the "Houdini" of the aquarium world; you can put any of them IN a tank, but they usually find a way OUT pretty quickly.

And if you manage to keep one in, keep in mind that even in the wild octopus have a short life span; usually 12-18 months
