    Im thinking about getting a 180 (72x24x24) or a 240 (96x24x24). What can I fit in it? Which octopus do you recommend ? or cuttle fish?

    Cuttlefish...im not sure, but the Octopus Vulgarus..also known as the common octopus can grow up to 2 feet...arm length. Pretty large and totally fit for your aquarium. I recommend the octopus cuz their awesome to keep.

    Be SURE to check out the "ceph care" section of this site if your in-experienced in keeping cephalopods in captivity.

    sepia oficialis can get up to 18" in the wild, i believe they remain smaller in the aquarium tho. sepia bandensis can reach a max size of about 4"
