:welcome: to TONMO. I'm not aware of anyone who's had a pet octo shipped to South Africa, but I know there are some ceph researchers who have spent time there, so they might know more. I think Tintenfisch stopped there on her world tour of squids in jars last year...

well if you want the requirements then you need to run your tank for at least 3 months and make sure there is no copper at all in the water. make sure you have good filtration because octos are messy eaters. octos have been known to be escape artists so make sure theres no way for the octo to get out of it's tank. those are the basics i guess.
