I just found this site today, been looking into Octo care and possible breeding. I am looking into starting a marine breeding farm in my area to keep wild caught fish around here to a minimum. I was wanting to look into adding Octo's and Cuddlefish to my breeding list. I have experience with reef and marine but only small community type fish. I plan on getting one octo as a pet that will help me learn how to care for them once I have my farm going. I will end up having alot of questions but Im not at that stage yet. I am going to pick up a 55 or 75 gallon aquarium soon and start the 3 month cycle. In that time it will give me the chance to buy all the proper equipment to properly care for the octo I get. I have decided that I will end up wanting to buy my first one from someone on here, I want one that is CB and one I know the age of. Not sure what kind yet, Preferably one with large eggs but I will be trying my hardest to have successful batches of small egged octos once I have everything going. In the past few days I upgraded my 25 gallon reef into a 55 gallon so I have to upgrade some equipment before I can go out and get my octo tank. I am leaning more towards a 55 gallon since I can get a good deal on those.
