    Hi there!

    As a short introduction.... I prefer to go by Ki online.. and have had an octopus love/obssesion... for pretty much as long as I can remember..and yet i never knew they could be kept as pets until about a year ago when I was researching them....

    which I found incredibly exciting :3

    lets see.... i have experiance with small animals....... 4-h for years with rabbits, chickens, guinea pigs, pigeons.... hamsters cats to top it off.....and only basic freshwater tanks :P

    I have NO salt water tank experiance... so Im going to start off with my basic freshwater tank... and take Lots of time and energy to make sure i can do it right.... but i look forward to it :D


    i harken from so cal.... raised in seattle..... lol


    *and im not terribly concerned with capitalization...usually.... so i aplogize in advance :) *

    I suppose thats about it!

    Ki,
    If you can afford it, you may want to try a small saltwater tank first rather than a freshwater (or did you mean you were going to start with a small marine tank and just mistype since you said you have had a fw in the past). Saltwater is considerably different from fresh in almost everything so most of the fw experience is not transferrable.
