Hello, all. I have questions about the captive breeding of octopuses. if most species are too territorial to cohabitate in even a 300g or 400g tank (from what i've read), what kind of facilities are conducive to the captive breeding of , say, bimacs? I may have the resources and am absolutely interested moe about the subject.

There are a few threads about Octopets, currently the only captive breeder. At least one mentions the mass octo escape at Octopets, when a generation of bimacs took to the ocean, infuriating impatient would-be pet owners around the US.
