    Welcome!
    As to the species, it really depends on your supplier...octos are a "hit n miss" sort of animal to aquire, and you have to roll with some punches. Unless you can find a specific animal you want already at a store, you will most likely have to go with a bimac, but they don't really qualify as small...but they do start that way! O. digueti comes in now and again, but with Mexico's new trade restrictions, I wouldn't bet on it...
    Best bet? Probably start with a bimac...and see where he/she leads you! Happy Cephing!

    Welcome to TONMO.com cephlamaniac!! Good luck with your octopus adventure -- definitely keep us informed each step of the way.

    bimac seems to be a great choice, especially for a first octopus.

    Hi! I just stumbled on this site myself. My wife and I have been talking about getting an octopus and/or cuttlefish, and after a brief search I found this site.

    Isn't it great that if you have an off the wall question like: "I wonder what I have to know to take care of a cephalapod" you can find it here?

    I don't really know enough to even start asking questions yet. The important thing is I (hopefully) loaded a picture of a cuttlefish from Epcot.
