Hello I am new on this forum. I thought I would shed My "lurker" status, I have not kept an octo before but i am very interested in them and I hope to soak up all the knowledge i can before getting one. It will probably be about 2 years before I get one because 1.I dont have a lot of money 2.I want to reasearch and learn about these amazing animals and 3. I want at least a year of saltwater experience, before I get an octo. Okay thats about it look for my threads!!
