Interesting - I never heard of that site before. I thought all octopus needed to be extremely secured in a tank. According to the site, these don't climb out, but care still needs to be taken. I was surprised by the acclimation procedure, as well - I figured they would need a long acclimation.

I remember having a small octopuss. My kids just loved it and could not wait to show other kids. It was in a small acrylic tank with lid on it. I may do this again.

Octopi are short lived and demand excellent water quality.

I recommend looking before leaping. If you are truly interested, here's some info

One word of caution......if it's beak can get through a hole, the octopus can get it's whole body through the hole.

Thank you for the replys, that is exactly why I posted the "question" in the first place. As I come to find out it doesn't look like some thing I am set up to take on right now.

An employee from Cayes Pets in Portland Oregon use to keep an octopus, his name is Ed. He no longer works at Cayes, but he had the same octopus for a few years from what I can remember. His tank was quite large, and was dedicated solely to his octopus. I wish I could give more information on his set up, but I only talked to him a few times about it. I hope this helps?
