Hey - any octo keepers in the UK


Nov 23, 2022

Hi everyone,
Just wondering if there are any octo keepers here in the UK?
I'm really keen to own one, have read loads and have a good idea of what's involved / needed but would really like to know if there are any UK keepers or aquatic suppliers specialising in octos?
I know octos need a good varied diet including live food but do they also take frozen?
What octos are most readily available in the UK (if any) and what size aquarium is required for a particular species/size?
Im aware sump set ups are most favourable but does anyone have success with any alternatives?
Any info, help or advice most gratefully received
HI @Nathan, thanks for joining! Over the years, we've had a number of UK octo keepers, and also cuttlefish keepers, but admittedly, it's been a while! Here are a few threads to check out:
There's a lot more, too! Feel free to reply to an old thread; it's possible that there are folks "watching" these threads and will receive an email notification upon response. Good luck and keep us posted on your progress -- thanks again for joining us!
