Hi I am new here and I am in the process of cycling my tank for an octopus. I'm not sure what kind to get and could use some advice. First a little background on myself. I consider myself an advanced fish keeper. I manage a fishroom in a mom and pop type pet store where I have worked for the past 16 years. I have taken care of and owned almost every fish and invertebrate there is and I have always had my heart set on an octopus! I have had experience with saltwater tanks since I set up my first one 12 years ago. I just set up a 40 gallon tank and am all set to start the cycling process but am unsure of what to use to cycle this tank. I don't want to use a fish due to the fact that with all the rockwork I have going on in there I will never be able to catch it before I put the octopus in.(I read you should not have any fish in there when you first introduce an octopus to your tank not due to the fact that it will be food but because it may spook the 'pus and cause it to ink. Is this true?)Any way, I still have a few questions and would like some advice from someone who has kept these interesting creatures before. I may with time, become a pest because I love to ask questions and always want to know!
