A little bit of info. We are starting to do research regarding keeping a octopus and a few other small (edible) friends. We love the Pacific Northwest, and are into boating, fishing, crabbing, and raising our 3 year old twin daughters. We live on the water and have a 42 foot Chris Craft in our back yard. We are in the process of running electric and fresh water down to our dock, which started the brainstorming possobilities of running an intake and drain hoses up to the house and into custom aquariums. We have a large closet that we figure we could get at least a 250 gallon if not more plus two 55 gallon alcoves we want to connect with piping for the big guy to travel about. The sea life down at our dock is amazing, not to mention great crabbing, now we just want to figure out if our dream is possible to bring this life indoors so we can enjoy it during the stormy season as well. All replys greatly apprecitatied. We have both kept saltwater pets in the past but never using a system that comes straight from nature.
Looking forward to learning more,
Amber and Merritt
