    I would say.....

    o. briareus becuse they grow a nice size and are friendly I know cause hade excpereance with 2 dwarfs are a bad idea becaus they only live for 2 months



    GET BRIAREUS!!!!

    Both of you should get either a briareus or a bimac. A bandensis can be kept in a 55 and a few can be kept in a 150. We don't recommend dwarfs as they're nearly always nocturnal and have short lifespans. Check out our ceph articles, they might help you in making a decision

    i think the briareus is a little cooler just because i can get one faster. thanks for your replys. and i figure that everyone is getting a bimac and i dont want to conform. :smile:

    Personally I would love a vulgaris, but I think that they prefer a slightly larger 75+ size tank.

    They are all cool I imagine, but definately don't get an s Officinalis!!!
    I think righty recommends 200G for a signle one!!

    3000gtman,
    I think you'd like a vulgaris, if you could find one. That's a nice, big tank. The downside is that they like to escape and that, of course, a large octo eats more!
