Hello guys! First off, I wish to thank the runners of this website. Such a wealth of information and support, I feel very confident about this endeavor because of the work that has been put into this website. I haven't ordered the octopus yet, but a vendor I found through this website is going to get an Octopus Briareus for me. I have a 125 gal acrylic tank to house it in so that should be plenty of room with about a 1lb of rock per gallon. It has been running for about a year so it is well cycled. However, I did just move the tank and did a 75% water change a week ago. I have ordered 50 shore shrimp to arrive tomorrow to just have in the tank. I am hoping that this will make the octo comfortable as it can hunt whenever it wishes. If this isn't a good route to take let me know! The vendor stated that I will probably be getting an adult. I still need to seal off the tank, I will provide pictures. But for now I need to seal off the opening to my power head, the overflow and 2 dollar coin sized holes that are in the 2 lids sealing my tank. Was thinking about getting some heavy duty clamps and a small weight to keep the lids down. How strong are octos is this enough reinforcement for the top?
