    Hello all!

    I've been trying to see if there are specific tanks. I'm a little paranoid with their escape tactics. Maybe not tanks, but at least specific covers?

    Thanks!

    :welcome: to TONMO!

    Unfortunately, the only real option is to buy a tank and escape-proof it yourself. You might be able to find someone willing to build a custom tank for you, but I don't know of anyone who's done that... Many people find that drilled overflows and keeping most of the filtration equipment in a sump make octoproofing easier. And lots of duct tape.

    You can read a lot about people's experiences over in Tank Talk, and perhaps Octopus Care and Journals & Photos.

    Thanks for the reply! I'll do some wandering around the site to get ideas.
