    Do you have a source for all the octopuses you name? And how big is your tank? That makes a difference, too.

    Same here. Vulgaris try to escape, briarius and joubini are nocturnal and all are not as playful. So A bimac would be good.

    remember to take off 10 - 15 % because your tank is not filled to the brim and there is displacement with sand and rocks etc!!!

    That's why UK tanks are sold as their external dimensions not gallons!
