Ok, I am wondering were i should start my marine aqurium. I was thinking about putting it in my room and don't know if the tv will scare a octopus or not. And don't want to have to move it when i finally get a octopus.
Can any of you help me with this question?

Yes, I can help you! We've had a number of people (5, I think) report that octopuses seem to watch TV! Their favorites are sports and cartoons.

Octos can't hear, but they do seem to sense very deep tones, so I'd hold off on the extra loud music with lots of bass.
