    Hi all,

    I'm an Australian expat who now lives in NYC, and can't wait to get an octopus and start looking after it.

    I recently bought a 56 gallon tank and stand that was on sale, which I hope will be adequate. I understand some species can do fine in a 50 gallon tank.

    I've never operated any sort of aquarium before, so I know that I have a lot to learn, and I'm looking forward to the learning experience and becoming a part of this community.

    Welcome to TONMO, JingoFresh! Have you started cycling your tank, or is still in the box? :smile:

    :cuttlehi:JingoFresh!

    We have several other new members just starting out and rather than trying to repeat some of the thoughts, I will direct you to a few specific threads:
    All the stickies (highlighted with yellow) in our Tank Talk forum
    Pyrosnowman's tank talk thread contains a recent discussion on tank considerations:
    caudill187's octopus care thread Contains a list and a brief description of commonly kept animals
    Sticky in Octopus Care that discusses tankmates

    For a feel on keeping an octopus, read through some of the journals. There is a sticky at the top of the forum with a sortable table that lists and links our octopuses journaled this year (there is also a combined post for prior years). Please consider journaling both your tank build out and your octo keeping experiences.

    Hi all, thanks :)

    My tank and stand are out of the box....but not setup. No water or anything inside just yet.

    DWhatley, a lot of good links, thanks!
