    Cephs are not a mainstream item and all have come from various places. Our sources forum is worth monitoring for spottings and you can look through the journals to see where current keepser have found their wards.

    :welcome: Keeping an eye on the "octopus availability" thread is usually your best bet.

    welcome to Tonmo ! I would heavily recommend getting the book by Nancy King and Colin Dunlop about keeping octopus in captivity. While we try to be as available as is possible, sometimes you are going to have a question that needs an immediate answer.

    You are also going to have to choose between the two. Octopus and Cuttlefish have very different tank requirements.

    Best,
