So I've been extremely intrigued by octopi for a very long time. Through my fascination I stumbled across this forum and have been doing lots, and boy do I mean LOTS, of reading! The main thread I have been following has been DJKaty's because of our similar interest in octopi, our want for a pet octopus, and our complete lack of aquarium knowledge! The only fish I have ever owned has been a beta fish, which I've had the same one for like 2.5 years in just a whatever fish bowl. He's definitely a fighter! Anyways, I want an octopus and am willing to take the steps and spend the money needed too! I'm very attentive, and a great quick learner, so I'm hoping I can manage! From the species I have been reading about, I definitely have fallen for the O. vulgaris! Ugh how I want one! Ok introduction time, sorry the excitement got to me! My name is Zach I reside in Seattle, Wa (go giant pacific octopus!) I am a student studying Civil Engineering Love a challenge 21 years old I would love any bit of help I could get on the set up and needs to get a O. vulgaris. I do find djkatys thread very helpful! Thanks to all!
