Ever since a few months ago Ive been taking care of my empty 30 gallon tank. The tank has been florishing for a wile now. the entire tank filled with snails, ornamental shrimp,crabs, and hermits. My cycling 90 gallon tank is almost done. Ive alerted a fish dealer that Im intrested in an octopus. I think Im actualy ready to adopt an octopus. I just wanted to get an opinion from you guys because again this is not offical yet. The dealer that I buy from sells different speceise of octopus but usualy they are a smaller bread. My last octopus seemed veary happy in his 30 gallon tank and if The octopus shows sighns of being cramped I have my 90 gallon. The entire tank is octo-proof and has all the nessisary requirments to hold an octopus.:wink:

Put the crap in the 30 and the Octo in the 90 gal
my recomendation.
30 gal too small
the problem with that is my 90 gallon isnt 4 months mature yet. eventualy I will put him in the 90 gallon or another tank. Any subjestions for a Speciese though.

Clownfish,

Some of us are trying to fill the role on a small scale by tank-raising from eggs rather than a self-sustaining brood stock. Unfortunately getting bimacs--let alone eggs--is proving very difficult!

If you're setting up for an octopus, expect to obtain another species. It may be a couple years before bimacs are available again.
