Hello. I live in Texas (USA) and my tank runs between 80.8 – 81.3 degrees F. Is this too warm for an Octopus Bimaculoides? I tried a cuttlefish during August when the tank was about 84 degrees F and the poor guy died after a couple of days. The ammonia, nitrites and nitrates were at zero (PH 8.1, 1.025 Salinity). Since then, I opened the top and replaced the glass with a plastic, non-toxic screen, turned on the ceiling fan and lowered the thermostat in the house. The temp is constant now (listed above). The cuttle was aquacultured and accustomed to a MUCH lower temp. I kept an octopus in Thailand successfully (what fun), but haven’t tried in the US. yet. Anyone ever kept Octopus Bimaculoides in 80 degree water? Total tank volume incuding refugium and sump is 180 gallons. Pump 1100gph, external.
