Octopus Care

I came across this the other day while I was looking up bivalves (cockles and pipis, my sister brought one home from the beach the other day and I had to convince her she won't be able to keep it as a pet). I thought it was a pretty interesting read and that I'd share with the AA community, hope you guys enjoy

That was a pretty cool read, the only time I've seen someone keep an octopus was on tanked, but I'm sure those dummies lost that poor thing in a week.

That was a great story. I would love to see some pics of the octupus.

That was a good read. My father in law apparently got a hitchhiker octopus that's been hiding for six months and just now was spotted on the prowl.
