Hello.
I am researching about having a pet octopus. Starter tips, and the responsibility of having a pet octopus to ensure it has the best life. If any of you have any experiences that might make my life easier they are very welcome. What was your first octopus pet? What is Recomended for a starter? Should I have some salt water Fish before even thinking about an octopus ?

You don’t have to have saltwater experience, but it helps to set up your tank well before you expect the arrival of your octopus. In my case it was 6 months.
