Hello im new and want to keep an octo. Whats the minimum tank size for an octo :?
Welcome to Tonmo,
Depends entirely on species, as their size varies greatly, but generally a 50-55 g would work for a bimac.
welcome to tonmo.... yep thats about minimum to doa good job of it
to TONMO, KalihiBoy!
! A 55 gallon tank is great! Do you have one?
Do you have any aquariums?
to TONMO.com Kalihiboy!
Hope you'll have a great time here
Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. :D
Well yeah I do have a 55gal,but I have fish and inverts in it.
Could I keap an octo with all of them in the same tank? :)
Well no not really. Either the octo would eat the fish or the fish might eat the octo. What exactly do you have in there?
I got a blue throat triggerfish,a potters angelfish,4 frilled gobies,a blennie,a long nose buterfly,3 sea urchins,4-5 brittle stars,2 hermits,a rock crab and 2 cowries.
I live in HAWAII,and some people I know cought there own octo's from the beach. Got any comments
As long as its legal then fine.. most species outwith Octopus bimaculoides are wild caught... maybe you'll get lucky and catch an Octopus cyanea???
that's a definite 'no' to the fish mixing by the way :)
Thanks alot for the info
Just one more question, what do i use for aquascaping?
I wonder where I got that from?
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE INFO :D
God Bless! :D
No problem. :)
Catch me a stubbby squid or two! :P
Good luck with your tank!
I want some too.
