Cost of octo setup

Apr 3, 2003

could someone pleez tell me how much money its going to be to buy all of the things i need to take care of an octo? i just need a ballpark estimate in order to get started.
:notworth: thank you!

The costs can vary greatly, as things like tank size, brand names, your local shop and even your location in the world can make a big difference.

But for a ballpark figure and asuming that you live in the US or UK I'd put aside about a couple of hundred to do it right :smile:

have a look at the equipment list and tick them off on an online retailer or a shop near you :smile:
