    I'm getting my new octo in about 1-2 months and I've been stumped on some questions:
    1. What the best species/easiest species to get?
    2. what should I name it?

    A. Mini Me
    B. Mr. Chuc Chuc Chee(My Mom came up with that name)
    C. Number II

    3. I saw a Blue Ring in my local pet store(no I'm NOT tempted to buy it, way to dangerous) What should I do? :|

    #1. Octopus bimaculoides, you can get it from www.octopets.com , but the octo may not make the trip, since your in Maine and Octopets is in California.

    #2. I don't know, Mr. Chuc Chuc Chee is probably the most original name out of the three.

    #3. Are the employees harming it in any way? I'd leave it there.

    You may want to wait longer since we recommend three months for cycling the tank; unless your tank has been cycling for a while already.

    :)

    Well, I'm worried that someone would buy it, and get bitten.

    Weird that a pet store would have a blue ring...they usually only order them in on a customer's request. I wouldn't worry about anyone being bitten...despite rumours to the contrary, they really aren't that aggressive.
    Maybe one of the employees will take it home...?
    I would certainly recommend a bimac from octopets...they have a 100% positive rating here !
    Good call on the cycling...yeah, you want a tank that is perfect before putting in an octo!
    Luck!

    50 gal is the recommended tank size for a bimac, now all you have to do is finish cycling the water and you're all set for a bimac :)
