Hey everyone, im new here and have been thinking for a long time about getting a pet octopus (well, any aquarium actually, but mostly an octo :wink: anyway, i know only the most basal of things about octopi (?) crae and was looking for help with all the basics. all i know are to avoid blue ring/mimic/wonderpus and that it takes about 3 months of cycling to get the tank ready. If anyone can point me in the right direction of a species (prefer a pygmy, but that really doesn't matter) stores that sell them/where to get them, costs, food, etc. i would appreciate it greatly. Thanks!
