Does anyone know of an octopus that could live in a 34g reef tank?
That's pretty small, but I would say a Merc might be okay or some other dwarf species. Also, I don't think they are really all that compatible with a reef set up. You should probably do some more reading before you attempt this.
Well that was option A. So is it possible that someone here could get me a carribean reef octopus?
Caribbean Reef Octopus is the common name for O. briareus... and it would outgrow a 34 gallon tank in about 3 months assuming you got a baby. Mine is in a 75 gallon and I wish the tank was bigger so the octopus would have more room to move around. Stretched out on the front glass it can almost touch both sides, and the tank is 48 inches wide.
I just found out my LFS has a 300g tank for sale that comes with a bunch of live rock and corals-no stingy ones though...
Well there ya go. I'd aim for an O. cyanea if I had a tank that big.
