I want to know all about vullgaris octopus. I dont know how to take care of them. i know there is a bimac but it is cold water.i had a starry octopus for a little bit but he died he's in a better place:
O. vulgaris gets to be quite large, and few home setups have the tank size and filtration to handle them. Unless you have a very large tank, you might be better off with a briareus, hummelincki, or aculeatus, which are all tropical and can fit in a 55-75 gallon tanks. What size is your current tank, and what kind of filtration does it have?
I have a 100 Gallon with 30 gallon wet/dry sump with 1250 gph internal pump.I know thats not big at all but its cycleing right now.I will have it in a 10 gallon for a week and a half i'm not intrested in a vulgaris. But how about a zebra I realy like them are they good for My setup. Keep in mind I will get a realy small one.
we really recomend against getting zebra's, they are cool looking, but are EXTREMELY hard to care for, and no one knows what their populations are in the wild, so they could be and probably are threatened. For an octo, they also dont make good pets and are not so interactive. If I had a 100 gallon, then I would probably get a briarus. A 100 gal is too small for a vulgaris. It doesn't matter how small of an octo you get, they grow REALLY fast.
If you haven't already, the "articles" tab at the top of the page would be a good place to start.
Yes i will get a 55 one of these days. But My frend has a mimic and he has had it for 2 years in a 30 gallon and he mimics the flounder the sea snake the lion fish every once in a wile i think it's cool. and if you say dont get one how about a joubini i'm geting tired of trying to find out witch octopus is best for me. i mean im not a beginer i have black tip sharks smoothhounds and all kinds of other sharks and tanks
