Octopus Ornatus


Blue Ring
Feb 5, 2004
I went snorkeling and i saw an Ornate Octopus(Octopus ornatus).
Down here in Hawaii we call it the night squid,and it is very very agressive. It wont let you touch it unless you get bitten :roll:

Can it be kept in a tank at home :heee: ?

What size tank are you thing about KB? And what steel reinforcement? :sink:
