I know there's joubini and mercatoris, but is there any other type octo that can go in a 30g tank? (besides the blue-ring please. :lol: )

Thanks

O. digeuti is sometimes offered for sale...we're lucky enough to be able to collect them locally, but they have really, really short life spans...but they do well in a 20 gallon tank, so a 30 would be fine.
