I posted pictures of her(?) when she was a baby but they were'nt any good.Hopefully these are better.She is in a 30 gal. tank now and seems happy with it but I need to know if I need to start looking for a bigger tank.

Are you new to the octopus as a pet? I am too, if you are! How old was she when you got her? I'm putting my octopus in a 30 gal also, but I'm moving them to a 55. The tank comes the same week as the octopus, so I can't wait! (I won't transfer them right away of course.)

PS: How much did you pay for yours?

This is my 3rd octopus.I don't know how old she was when I got her but she was about the size of a quarter overall.She lived in a 12 gal. nano tank until she grew up some.She seems to be happy in the 30 gal. for now.If she grows any more then I'll get a bigger tank,my husband will have my hide if that happens.We already have a 150,135,2-30,and 12 gal.Any time we're in the kitchen she has to sit in the front of the tank and watch what everyone is doing.Feeding time she comes to the top and flips upside down waiting to be fed.She has to hold your hand while she's eating or if you are doing anything in the tank.She is so cool.You will definately enjoy yours if you take the time to get to know it.
