I've been "lurking" as a member for a while and finally decided to make an account! Mostly because I am seriously considering getting an octopus and I figured it would be must more helpful to actually talk to people about it instead of just reading!
There is a sticky in Octopus Care, Posts with Info for New Octo Keepers that contains a linked list of posts and the articles forum to assist new octopus keepers. There is definitely a lot of reading required but we are here for learning, fun and relating experience in a discussion format as well.
