Hello all!
I hear this is the place to introduce yourself.
My name is Kate and I live in Washington State (did not mean to rhyme there it just happened.)
I am new to the saltwater side of aquariums, dealing mostly with fresh, but enjoy a challenge and have been looking for an aquatic animal that is not just entertaining but also interactive. So far everything I have read on octopus has sound right up there.
Any tips or advice my fellow hobbyists have for me is always a great welcome.

Thank you all and looking forwards to learning as I go.

:welcome: Kate! For a feel for cephalopod interaction, take a look as some of the longer journals for both octopuses and cuttlefishes.

Thanks! I've been reading a lot here. It's great and I enjoy reading and learning.
Are there any recommended articles or books on starting in the marine hobby I should check out? I've seen the one book called 'Marine Aquarium Handbook- beginner to breeder'. Is this a good source?
I'm planning to take my adventure slow and steady as I want to do it right.

We don't have a lot of beginning marine aquarium information well categorized as it is scattered within various Q&A discussions in the Octopus Care forum but I can direct you to a collection of books about cephalopods that you might look over. Unfortunately, @Colin and @Nancy 's book, Cephalopods: Octopuses and Cuttlefish for the Home Aquarium is no longer in print but you may find an odd copy around. I did locate this e-book version doing a Google search but can't vouch for its quality.

I have contacted the book's publisher, TFH, about this listing. They told me they intended to make this into an e-book, but it's not available now. They are researching this listing and will get back to me about it.

Update- just heard from TFH. The Cephalopods book is not available, despite being in their book catalog. They will probably eventually release it as an E-book, but there are no definite plans or a definite date.

Thank you for checking.
I hit a bit of luck and was able to find a hard copy of the book. This will be a great help and an enjoyable read.

I'm onto my first step for this adventure- getting my first salt water tank set up today and will start the learning hands on process.
I'd like to have a location to post statuses as I work my way up to owning a ceph - which spot would be best to post my progress?
Super excited!
