Hey I found a site that has a lot of good (kinda basic) information about octopuses. If you don't want to read it, they have lots of good pictures and some videos as well. They seem to talk a lot about A. Aculeatus. They also make O. Cyanea seem like a very well suited octopus for aquarium life, I'm suprised more people don't house them.

TOLWEB has wonderful pages for cephs in general, I think it's one of the best filled-in areas of the TreeOfLife project.

I don't think I'd read that overview before, but in general, tolweb is a great resource; I can get lost in it for hours... (just based on this post, I learned about Placozoa!
