I think I'll go for it though...what special care do they require, other than a lack of tank mates?

Have you looked at Tonmo yet? I know it was suggested. All your questions are answered there.

It's unfortunately a fact of life with cuttles and octos. That's partly why not many people keep them, harder to care for and they don't live anywhere near as long as most fish in aquaria.

There was a guy on youtube with an octo (bimac or vulgaris, I don't remember) and he had some videos of it, very interesting, and he had a video of it near the end of it's life. Completely white and barely moving, very hard to watch.

If cared for properly that could be several years, almost a decade
