Fine grain is DEFINATELY important...you don't want the little guy scraping himself on the sand. What do you have to regulate the temp?

ok fine sand it is. I was planning on using the room's temperature to keep the tank warm enough. i live in oregon so the temperature stays pretty solid doesnt sway much... i already bought the 40 gallon (way cheaper) thanks for the pics dude.

NP hoped they helped. With a 40 gal, I suggest definately to feed every other day!! Which is good anyways, but prolly more of a nec. here!

Well, in the confined space of a 40, you dont want the octo to out grow his tank! :|

I would get a 55 from PetSuperMarket. Edit: Sadly, there doesnt seem to be a PetSuperMarket near you. Try PetsMart and ask for only the tank and not the combo. Hope that helps! :D
