:welcome:

I guess the best way to start to answer your questions is for you to read the ceph care articles. They are chock full of good advice. What size tank were you planning on? 50G is the minimum really! As for food, crabs, shrimps (marine!), amphipods for wee octis, some will take clams. Some octis learn to take (thawed) frozen food others demand live food all the time!!!

Cheers
