Hello,
My name is James and I registered here a few years ago but have only begun to use this site regularly. I have always been fascinated by Cephalopods (I think it may have something to do with the cuddly octopus toy I had as a baby :baby: ). I have encountered an octopus in the wild once while snorkeling, and was amazed at how inquisitive it was while the other sealife would shy away :smile: I am considering keeping an octopus, and hope to find out using this forum if it is practical for me or not. It seems from what I have read that it is difficult to obtain an octopus in the UK. I have seen one for sale before, but unfortunately they obviously had no clue on how to keep them as it was in a very small tank with one piece of live rock to hide in :roll: . I am also fascinated by giant squid and am amazed to see Dr Steve O'Shea using this website :notworth: . This seems like a very friendly community and I look forward to being part of it.
Thanks :smile:
James

:welcome: If you haven't already, start with the articles, then read through some of the journals and tank talk in the forums link.

Yep, it is hard to believe that O'Shea is here too...after all, he has so many Neil Diamond records to listen to...

But with his discovery of YouTube SOS can do both at the same time :razz:
