lots to know

you have to read through the articles on tonmo and you will find everything. first thing you need to do is run a tank for at least 3 months. any trace of copper will kill your octo. for food read the top of the page. there is an octopus availability thread. what size tank do you have? octo's produce a lot of waste so you need good filtration. do you have any idea of what octo you would like to get? look through the journals to get some what of an idea of what octo you want. and welcome to TONMO!!!!!!!
