hello all


Oct 15, 2004
hello everyone,
i have been a member for a while but actually have not been here for quite some time. i went from thinking about a octo to going full out reef tanks :smile:

well i have finally come full circle and have decided i want to set up a tank.
first question is, what is the most recommended octo for a novice keeper. i am fine with tank setup and prep but am not sure what is the best pet to go with. i was thinking a bi-mac.
give me your opinions please

thanks chris
