........heh..heh... that dosent help me
Well given the fact that there's most likely no video on how to care for cephs/octopuses, I don't think your gonna get much help to be honest. If you don't like reading, im not sure what we can do or what you can find. If you want info on taking care of Octopuses your best bet is to read and research...especially on their biology and their captivation. It's so important to learn about cephs from the BASE up...because its healthy for them and the most effective way to mantain them as animals.

If your enthusiastic with octopuses like us here...I thought reading ABOUT octo's would be enjoyable. If you dont find reading about octo's educational as well as enjoyable, then im not sure how enthusiastic you are with them. You have to really love them to keep them and not just for thrill purposes.

At the risk of asking the obvious, if someone answers you on this thread, isn't it just as hard to read it here as in ceph care? :hmm: Really, this strikes me as disrespectful of all the work Nancy, Colin, and crew have put into writing up the articles in ceph care-- they've put a lot of effort into making sure that the information there is proofread and tested, so that they are good sources of information, probably a good deal better than anything that anyone would write up as a specific response to your questions. Of course, Tony was thinking of doing audio (and maybe video) lectures in a "podcast" as a new feature for TONMO, so maybe that would be an easier format for you if someone makes a multimedia extravaganza of bimac care... but nevertheless, I think it is much more polite to take advantage of the resources people have set up than to dismiss them out of hand because you're uncomfortable with the format... It's wonderful that this is a forum where you can get experts to answer specific questions, but having the experts answer basic questions they've already written up the details of presumes that they have nothing better to do than spend their time hand-feeding you information that is available elsewhere... Just my :twocents:, and I feel a bit like I'm playing "miss manners" here, but this comment struck me as really not giving the ceph care staff the respect they very much deserve :notworth:

I'm with Armstrong and Monty, it's going to be hard to get info without reading. You're going to have to help yourself, that's what these forums are here for... You might also try our Forum Search -- it's a powerful tool:

Hey, Greg.... I want a portion of the profits when the audio version comes out.

Octo Octo.... I know I wasn't terribly helpful. Sometimes I get a little impish. I think the other members here understood what I was getting at.

I don't think we can tell you how to keep a ceph in a few short posts. If you don't want to do research and read the Ceph Care articles in addition to past posts, you're probably not ready to keep an octo.

There's a lot to read and a lot to learn, but we've tried to draw together the information in the articles to make it easier for you. Quite a few Tonmo members have been able to use this information successfully.

Sorry there are no shortcuts!
