Hello everyone. Just joined, figured I'd say hello. I've been keeping saltwater aquariums since 2007. I've mostly focused on marine ornamental fish and corals. A few years ago, however, I started working at the National Aquarium in Baltimore. I fell in love with cephs after spending some time with Lola, our GPO (who recently passed away, sadly). Ever since we first interacted, I knew I wanted an octopus of some kind. I recently was able to find a vendor with one in stock (KP Aquatics) and picked one up!

In addition to introducing myself, I wanted to say thank to all the members here. This is the best source of octopus-related information on the entire Internet. I did a lot of researching before I got my octopus. For a while, I would go to Google when I had a ceph-related question. Usually, I found no information, or links to Tonmo came up first in the search results. After a while, I made Tonmo my first stop when I needed some info. I hope that as I become more proficient at cephalopod care that I can offer help to future members.

Thanks again for having me, and thanks for all the good info from all the other members here :smile:
