Species only tank. No CUC either, nada. Very cool but rather short life spans and have very specific needs. Doable though if you really research it and come up with a good plan. If you decide to go through with it make sure you stay away from venomous species (blue-ring).

The only thing that discourages me more than anything else is they only live 6 months to a year. So no matter what you do to keep it alive, it will only be for 6 months.

I remember a friends Dad had to care for one and he had to constantly give it new toys to play with in the tank multiple times a day since they're super curious and like to play with new things.

They're also ridiculously good at finding ways to escape. Even with a special octopus lid it still escaped twice.
