O. vulgaris Maximum Temperature


O. bimaculoides
Hello everyone,

Saw some O. vulgaris at a Korean restaurant and thought about getting one. Their tank has a chiller though, keeping the water quite frigid. Anyone know if they can adjust to tropical temperatures?

O. vulgaris, the common octopus is a group of speices inhabiting tropical to temperate waters. It's found throughout the world.

I think most of the ones we see here in the US come from the Caribbean Sea but I don't know for sure. We usually have one or two Tonmo members keeping vulgaris and I don't believe any of them used a chiller.

So I think the question is, where did these octopuses come from - cooler waters, or is the restaurant using a chiller when it doesn't need to?
