Hello, This is my first post. I found this site through the Tropical Fish Hobbyist: Cephalopod issue. I've never had a Saltwater tank before, but starting a Pico Reef now. However, my question is this; Due to the short life spans of your octos', how do you cope with the loss? I get extremely attached to my animals, and if it were to pass away in such a short time, I don't know what to do. I know a Ceph isn't the best for a first timer, but I want to do as much research as possible, because after I move, I'll be starting a 75gal Reef, and will want to try a Cephy. I love animals that show intelligence, and of all the aquatic animals, Octo's seem to show the most intelligence of all the animals I've kept. I look forward to getting started and appreciated any info you could provide.
