I want to get an octopus and hook its tank up to my reef tank. the tank i have for it is probably about 35 gallons and it more of a tall tank but i will put a tower of live rock in the center. what types of octopuses would like this setup?

It's possible that you could get by with a 35 gallon if your system can handle the large waste load of an octopus. There are a few species that might not object to a 35 gal tall tank, although we really do suggest you get a minimum 55 gallon, because the majority of octopus available will not be happy in anything less, and also because the average LFS will not be very good on identification of the octopus they get in. There are some species that need a much larger tank. On the other hand some of the dwarfs will be content with less. Many of them are nocturnal and spend most of their time hiding, so for most people they are less than ideal. There's a brand new book on ceph care that was written by 2 of our staff members. (It's pictured on the left side of the front page.) It's a great book, and well worth the money if you are serious about adding an octopus tank to your setup.
