What are some of the things that one should care to consider when they plan to travel without their octopus. I know there has to be someone who really understands how to take care of it. Someone who understand the right parameters. Any other tips one should insist on?

And someone who can repair tank issues... maybe contact an aquarium store in your area (local, not big box) and see if they have someone knowledgable that can octo-sit?

How many days will you be away?
There was one of our Tonmo members who had two people take care of his octopus: one visited to check the tank, parameters, do top off, etc. and the other to feed the octopus.
