Octopus vulgaris get up to 3 feet long! Dont expect to keep one in anything less than a 150 gallon tank or larger. How large is your aquarium?
I suggest a pygmy octopus. They can be put in a 30 gallon and only grow to about ..ahh 5in-8in. Octopus food must be live so I suggest getting food from here. i usulay use fiddler crabs.
