Hello, My name is Amy and I am not new to saltwater, but definitely new to cephs. Wasn't sure where to post this, please move if needed. Anyway, by the luck of where I live, I have recieved 4 baby O. Briareus from Dwhatley. (I am sure you have seen her thread) I just heard of the oppurtunity last nite and after a very limited amount of research, here is what I came up with. It may sound strange, but raising these guys, seems to be an experimental tasks, and you never know what might work. I took a 10g tank, added a sponge filter, a cheesy little freshwater carbon and floss filter(right corner in pic), a 3 inch airstone, and a small heater. I put netting over the output lines on both filters to keep the octo's from getting in there. Next I added a 1g round glass goldfish bowl with a small airstone. Then I stole some water from my 125g and topped it off with fresh saltwater. Added some lie rock and sand from my 20g and some chaeto(hopefully full of pods) from refugium. I split all this between both tanks. Then I hung a clamp light about 2-3 ft above the tanks and put a 25w red bulb in there! Pics to help explain.
