Not sure if this is the right place to post this request. I am a high school teacher. I have a bit of experience with cold water marine tanks. I am on Monterey Bay in California. Recently I decided it is time to build an octopus habitat in my classroom. A generous soul donated a 75 gal acrylic tank with several powerheads, an air pump, a fluval filter. I am looking for pictures of tank setups. My plan now is to have an overflow from the 75 gal into a sump tank for gravel filtration, a home made protein skimmer, an in line chiller. I am just about the most visual person ever and descriptions in articles do not communicate enough to me. Any pictures of your tank set up out there? Any on this site already? (I looked but did not find any yet)
thanks in advance

Probably the best place for this is the "Tank Talk" forum, under the ceph care section if you click on the forums link on the top of the page (or from here: http://www.tonmo.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=11

The tank owner's database has some info, but no pictures, too: http://www.tonmo.com/forums/octo_main.php

People have posted their octoproofing and a lot of other details, usually in "Tank Talk" although occasionally "Journals and Photos." I can't find any in a quick glance; I don't think there have been any good pics of octoproofing for the past few months, but I seem to recall there have been some in the past year; you might want to try the forum search or wait to see if others chime in. Maybe asking more specifically over in tank talk would help, too... a lot of tank owners love to talk about their tanks, so I'd expect you can find out quite a bit. Of course, the ceph care articles (under the articles button at the top of the page) have some good information as well.

oh, and :welcome: to TONMO!

It struck me that this forum shouldn't be limited to just K-12, and instead should also house discussions associated with college / university, post-grad studies, etc., so I renamed this forum to simply "Education".

Primary focus is on cephalopods, and since essentially all marine studies covers this in its coursework (or is at least closely related), anything in this realm is on-topic.

Okay, cool. I mostly ask because although I may like to discuss something I hear or do in a class, as far as I can tell not many courses offered here go into great detail about cephalopods specifically (although we did have a lovely discussion about traits/features of cephalopods unique to them among molluscs when going over that group in zoology this past semester).

2010 update: This forum has been expanded to cover all aspects of Education & Employment as it relates to making the world a better place for cephalopods. Thanks D for the suggestion!
