im new into the whole ceph. thing. ive done some research and found out some very interesting info on them. Ive been into saltwater aquariums for about and 1yr and a half now. mainly just reef tanks. But i would like to extend my hobby and get a tank going for an octopus.

I would like to see all the things you guys would reccomend for the tank besides a protien skimmer, and a good lid.

:welcome: to TONMO. In general, we don't encourage the purchase of Wunderpus and Mimics, since there's some suspicion among people who study them that the populations are being over-collected. See the "Exotics" forum for discussion of those species.
