after looking through some pictures and some very undetailed articles, i think ive settled on the idea of owning one. but im wondering what i have to do to get ready for this particular species. Is the 125gallon tank im planning on getting going to be big enough? also, is this species cold water? does it live long for an octo? is it okay as a first octopus? from the reading ive done it seems like this octo is slightly larger than say...a bimac, and also seems to be more interactive. correct? also, does anyone know if this species is prone to eating clams/mussels that are okay for humans to eat? my boss gets them cheap and is willing to order them for me. i live in the southern tier of ny...not many options when it comes to seafood... but we do seem to have crayfish available year round. are crayfish suitable food?
