    Hi,
    I've been visiting this site for ages, reading journals etc and learning what I can, but I've only just registered.
    I've got a cycled tank with a lid ready for my first cephalopod. I have limited options due to 120litre tank size but I'm trying to source octopus mercatoris or sepia bandensis, but in the UK this is proving tricky. I have a supplier who says his shipper will get cuttlefish eggs, and he will let me know when they're in. So fingers crossed!

    The live rock makes two large caves, and if I source an octo I will putty and acrylic rod it all together to be safe. The lid isn't octo proof either yet but nearly there.

    Thanks. Let's hope I can get a nice ceph for it!

    If you go with the bandensis (most likely acquisition), you will not have to worry with octoproofing the top :wink:

    Yep. That's why I haven't bothered just yet.

    For our US members, a 120 liter tank is 31.7 gallons.

    Hope you can find your bandensis or small octopus soon!

    I have politely declined the blue rings. Thanks for the offer tho.

    I have to confess I got bored waiting and all the main suppliers said they couldn't get hold of any. So I now have a mandarin and a dwarf zebra lionfish.
