    I have been in the Aquarium hobby for a little over 12 years now. I have had tanks in sizes of 1 gallon -450 gallons. I'm now in the process of setting up my newest tank it will be a reef tank 120X30X48 acrylic. I've also been getting my octopus tank ready for it's new owner that will be here on Tuesday. I have a 19 gallon globe tank that has a canister filter on it and an 18 watt pc light. I'm getting a pygmy octopus from Tom out of Florida. Here are a few pictures of the tank.

    Welcome. Your globe tank looks like a little washing machine! :)

    Good luck with your new octopus. I got my current 'pus from Tom and I've been very pleased.

    Ok so after about 3 weeks of waiting for my Octopus I finally picked him up tonight. He is about an inch or so big. I have to say so far I amazed, he is so cool. I will take some pictures tomorrow when the light comes on.
