    Hi everyone, what a wonderful community this is! To be honest, I am very limited in my knowledge of the amazing Cephalopod. However, I've been searching the net as much as possible to increase my knowledge because I can't even believe how increadible they are! I would love to own one, but obviously would like to know enough about them and there habitat, etc. to provide a comfortable living space.

    It's quite obvious that you all care very much for these amazing creatures and I would love to learn more.
    Any pointers on:
    1) Finding as much info as possible
    2) Starting a setup

    Reading all the articles under Ceph Care is a great start. If you search google on keeping octopus (and other word variations, ie octopus pet, etc) you'll find a few articles from online saltwater organizations. That will also bring up some of James Wood's articles on Cephbase.

    Once you have a general idea of what is involved, spend some time searching through the tank talk and journal archives here at TONMO for information on specifics.

    Wow, looks like a big welcome! Have fun with the ceph stuff. It takes a lotta work, but it is well worth it. Or so I hear...

    Note: If you post over 18, 000 posts, "Squidman" will be your rank.
