    So you have an octo now! Congratulations! Does it have a name? Some pics would be nice, too.

    What sort of water is this? And what sort of salt did you use? Did you add anything else or do any water treatments?

    Uh, yes. You definitely need a skimmer on an octo tank. It removes quite a lot of impurity and toxin from the water in short order...you should check out the list under "ceph care" up top to see what all you are going to need!!!

    If you have an eclipse system, I would recommend the current model...the airlift variety work well in a sump, but not hanging from the back of a tank...
