Octopus at the Coast


Aug 13, 2009
I have a 12 gallon cylinder that is set up like a lagoon habitat. If I can get a lid fashioned for my aquarium I'd like to set up a small group (3-5 animals) of octopus mercatoris. Has anyone found any of these guys on the Texas coast or in a live bait tank at a bait shop on the Texas coast? If so, could you list where it was found? I've heard that cephs can be found occasionally at bait shops.
