:welcome: to TONMO!

As shipposhack said, the ARTICLES tab at the top is the best starting point for more information. There's also an "introduce yourself" forum if you'd like to do that.

As far as the 3 month cycle time, that's really what's necessary for any saltwater tank to completely stabilize. The difference is that cephs are particularly sensitive to water quality fluctuations that you can get away with in other cases, so you run a big risk of hurting an octo if it's put into a tank that might not be completely stable yet.

It's like how you are supposed to wait 9-12 months to put SPS or clams in your reef tank. Not that most people follow that rule though, and usually with bad results if they don't.
