i've been wanting a pet octopus for ooooooooh so long, and now that i'm living somewhere permenent where i can really care for it, i need to know where to start, its not something i wanna rush into, but rather do right..... is there a smaller creature that may be easier to care for to break me into salt water tanks? any links or help would be great.... and what about a mimic octopus? is it possible or legal to have one as a pet? I'm willing to go through insane trouble to have one of these, i would be content to just see a live one, but unfortunetly its medically impossible (multiple spontanious pneumathorax) for me to scuba dive so this may be one of the few options for seeing a real one.
