    Ok so what are the KEY items that you MUST have to have a pet Octopus?

    Is this right:

    Tank
    R/O Water
    Salt
    Hydrometer
    Thermometer
    Protien Skimmer
    Filter
    Live Rock
    Live Sand


    Anything else?
    I just need the KEY items.

    ThanX!

    As far as I know (which isn't much) I don't believe live sand is necessary if you have live rock.

    I also believe a test kit would be necessary unless you are going to bring samples to your LFS regularly.

    Not even 2 cents worth of advice... but its the best I got!

    Sump is not on your list.

    My sump came together with my wet/dry (trickle) filter, maybe that's why it's not on the list.

    Also, you will need test kits for pH, nitrates, nitrites and ammonia. You can have the tests done at your LFS, but that's awkward because you'll need to run then quite often.

    A powerhead pump to add oxygen to the tank is not a bad idea, either.
