What can I put in a 180?


Jan 6, 2006
Im thinking about getting a 180 (72x24x24) or a 240 (96x24x24). What can I fit in it? Which octopus do you recommend ? or cuttle fish?

how big does the vulgarius get? and the cuttlefish?

Cuttlefish...im not sure, but the Octopus Vulgarus..also known as the common octopus can grow up to 2 feet...arm length. Pretty large and totally fit for your aquarium. I recommend the octopus cuz their awesome to keep.

Be SURE to check out the "ceph care" section of this site if your in-experienced in keeping cephalopods in captivity.
