I have been looking for caring a common octopus (o vulgaris). What are the care requirements for that specific species and where could you possibly buy one? Thanks.

There is a short collection of posts in the Posts with Info for New Octo Keepers thread that will help explain the current state of octopus acquisition. Basically it is very much a hit or miss find with no continuous suppliers for US born animals. Monitoring and/or emailing independent fish stores and collectors is your most likely avenue.

Currently, you may want to follow Casper's journal for a species specific adventure.
