I happen to think so...they are very rewarding animals to be around. But they are certainly not for everyone!

Have a look at the Sticky at the top of the Tank Talk forum - it begins
What do you have.....

This thread lists the equipment people have and what they paid for it, so it gives you an idea.

Look at Octopets for an idea about what an octo costs.

Food can be expensive. They eat (thawed) frozen shrimp, live crabs, snails, etc.

That's a start for you!
