    Got Questions

    Hi everyone. I am flirting with the idea of getting an octopus, but really don't feel I know enough about them. Hmmm, before I go into this any further I would like to know if I could keep a bimac in a 30 high... or would it need a longer tank for more surface area...

It is redish in color and that is about as much as I can describe it ( due to the fact that I can briefly catch a glance of it only when it dashes out to take the piece of food that i left it at the entrance of its "lair"). It is about...
