I’m new to to Ceph World! I’m looking at getting a Octopus Cyanea or Vulgaris! I’m in the beginning stages of tank dimensions so it will be a little bit.

Thanks Gabe

:cuttlehi: @AngelGabe94 since you have specified specific species, I will assume you know about the Kanaloa Octopus Farm in Hawaii (the only place I know where they are available). O. vulgaris are harder to source and are usually found accidentally in the US pet trade. Both require large tanks but the US vulgaris can typically be raised in something a bit smaller.

Welcome Gabe! Good to hear you are taking your time; once you get the tank you want, you'll need to outfit it, cycle it, etc. Keep us posted on your progress :thumbsup:
