How do you breed octopie

Mike Bauer

Anyway, If you manage to order a male and female octopus and wanted to try and breed them what would be required. I don't have any or am I planning on ordering any soon. But I would just like to know the basics. Can a pair be kept in the same tank? Does the male after mating? Female after laying the eggs? Let say we are talking about a pair of bimacs. :read:

Mercatoris is the only one that it has worked for in home aquariums.

typically the male is kept in one tank, female in another, then they are allowed brief interaction to mate then they are separated again.

D has a thread that has video of the whole process she went through with Tank and Cassy.
