Hi everyone!

I have been reef keeping as a hobbyist for several years now, and in the last year got a gig as an aquarist in a small public aquarium. We have a GPO and a smaller ruby octopus on display and am absolutely fascinated by them. Since octopuses are so cool I'm toying with the idea of turning my personal reef tank into an octo tank, or maybe have some cuttles.

I know I love pictures, so I figure I should share some photos of me and my bud "The Dude". I'm amazed at how much personality this guy has, and he has really taken to me. I often give him dog toys with food stuffed inside, and jars etc. He seems to respond well to them, and is very curious. I'm looking forward to hearing other peoples experience with these fantastic animals!

We have a couple of unusual journals (Jean keeps an on-going one for the Portobello octo and Haggs visits his local "lagoon" to photograph any that stay for awhile) and I would invite you to start one for Dude and another for the Ruby. There are no requirements for what goes into the journals but I do list their links for others looking for experiences with species. If you go to the Octopus Care Forum you will see green stickies at the top. The entries starting List of our Octopuses 20... are links to a small cross reference I keep for the journaled animals. I can copy your first post of Dude to start one for him if you would like. We certainly would enjoy reading about his activity.

Hi Dan,
Welcome to the site. Those are impressive photos of The Dude!
Hope you do write a journal with lots of pics.
