Finally after such a long dry spell of not having an octopus, I'm starting up a new system. Because of various reasons I sold my 250 gallon tank and moved what few corals and anemones I wanted to keep into a 10 gallon tank. I have a 55 gallon tank stand, glass top, and canopy that was housing my freshwater vivarium. I moved everything into a 37 gallon tank and currently selling them. I just finished setting up the 55 gallon for a saltwater tank for a new octopus. I added some bio spira that is said to instantly make the tank safe for fish to help speed up the bio cycle. I'm thinking about getting a small damsel to help it along as well. As soon as it's properly cycled I'm going to move everything from the 10 gallon into the 55 gallon. I'm going to give the corals some time to completely attach to the rocks and then search for a new octopus. I'm hoping I'll be able to find another tiny O. Hummelincki as I had before. Here is a video I took a few hours ago. The tank is still a little cloudy because I just added three bags of sand.
