    Hi Brett and Welcome to TONMO.com :)

    You can take your pick from these three form of filtration.. wet/dry, internal power filter like a fluval 4 or external canister filter.

    The best way to use it it in conjunction with a sump and ideally i use a wet/dry with a large trickle tower. If you use a sump the equipment can all be put there and the octopus wont mess about with it. A sump also increases water volume.

    A skimmer is a must!!!!

    And fresh good quality carbon changes every couple of months or after an 'inking sesion' by the octo.

    hope this helps... for more info have a read at the articles in the ceph care section of the site...

    cheers
    Colin

    :welcome:

    I personally went the wet/dry sump route and it is just as Colin stated a perfect place to put everything I dont want my octo to get to, or I need to get to regularly.
