    Hey i am new to the world of Cephs but have been into reef keeping and saltwater aquaculture for quite awhile. i have come to this site several times to read and lurk, but finally decided to join and further my interests a bit. currently i have a small tank i need of a dwarf species. i have a 70g in the works, that also will be for an octopus, any suggestions?

    You're likely to be better off waiting for the 70gal, since it can handle the larger species, which tend to be a lot more interactive, rewarding, and long-lived. The 70 should be able to handle a bimac, briareus, hummelincki, or aculeatus, all of which are highly recommended.

    Welcome aboard :)

    I agree with Monty. O. mercatoris is probably all you'd find as far as dwarf octopuses go and they aren't real big on human interaction or daytime activity. If you're a night person though you might enjoy them.
