Im really glad i have found this community, I have been to numerous aquarium stores (im located in houston,TX) and most of the staff seem to have no information at all about keeping an octopus other than "its extremely hard and expensive and they can die easily." I am really excited to have found a resource like this one. I do not have much experience with aquariums, but my best friend has a fresh water tank that kinda got me interested. I am fascinated by Octopi (sp?) I just wanted to introduce myself- I plan on being fairly active on the forums because i still have a lot of questions and answers before one of these beings is in my room and happy. Thanks! I cant wait.
