    Hello everyone. I was doing some research and have found some 55 gallon tanks at petsmart, and was thinking about this one: http://www.petsmart.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3804445

    I was told that it would work for marine environments, and I have been told that it wont work. Will it work? If not, where can I get a good quality 55 gallon tank? If the one I listed wont work, please include brands, models, and places where I can buy the tank. Thank you!

    It will work fine for a marine environment, however for a octopus or cuttlefish i thinnk you are going to want more/better filtration, such as a sump with a wet/dry filter.

    Hi, sorry for the late reply, I completely forgot about this post :P

    Anyway, would you mind taking a look at my setup sketch, and tell me how I can improve it? Do you know of any good tutorials about setting up a wet / dry filter? Thanks.
