Smaller Octopus

I was actually lookin for lights for the 29 gallon I am starting up (upgrading from the 10 gallon)

I came across this

http://cgi.ebay.com/Octopus-joubini-...QQcmdZViewItem

I was wondering if anyone has some more info on keeping them ,experience etc, as far as tank size, cost for feeding, tank set ups, keeping multiples in a tank and what size tank would be needed

(I am askin, cause it says a 5 gallon tank, and I will in a few weeks once the stuff for the 29 gets ordered and delivered, will have an open 5gal and 1 or 2 10 gallon tank)

Just to let you know, they have very short life spans.

IMO they are best left in the ocean. Evidently the person selling dont know much about them either or he would not have said they can be in a 5 gallon tank.
