    That would really depend on the species of octopus you are keeping (or setting up a tank for, right?)...diurnal octos will do fine with daylight bulbs for 12-14 hours...nocturnal octos can be viewed with moon bulbs or red bulbs (it is easier to see them in red light for humans...rather than blue).

    bimacs are diurnal...so just 40 watt daylight bulbs will be fine.
