Hi everyone. I am new to the site and I am still working on learning how to navigate my way around it. I found it because I am awaiting the arrival of my very first octopus.(braireus sp.) I've spent hours searching for the most information I can-I have about 4 years of reefkeeping experience and I own 6 saltwater tanks. I wanted to tell you all that this site has been a HUGE help. I told my husband I was so surprised at how strong of a bond each of you have with your aquatic pets, that makes me feel better because we do too, we spend hours and hours each day enjoying our tanks!! I am a little nervous awaiting my new arrival but I will be able to do what I need to in order to keep him or her alive. How do I know if it is a he or a she anyways? Thanks for being part of a great site, I look forward to keeping in touch and now the next task... naming him/her....arg!
