hey! my name is mary frances and i am 15 and live in southern alabama, on the coast of the gulf of mexico. I have always been fasinated by marine life, especialy the octopus! The most common ones around here are the O. vulgarius. Ive recently been working at an estuarium and have decided to buy a tank and try to capture an octopus to raise. Any advice or 'tricks of the trade' would be welcome!
