That's why you wear really thick multiple gloves.

There's a reason people are giving you all this advice saying don't get the octopus, they aren't trying to ruin your fun they are attempting to save your life, octopi are notorious for escaping "escape proof tanks" and their beaks can bite through "really thick gloves" you would need a chain mail or kevlar glove just to be in the realm of safety, as far as I'm concerned this venture is foolhardy at best and plain dumb at worst, if you refuse advise and continue down this path, well I wouldn't be surprised to see you on Fatal Attractions on Animal Planet.

Go with the cuttlefish. More interesting and easier to keep. They change colors, too, "iguanas of the sea". I really love them.

That's what I was thinking but just don't know which to choose from. I want to get a cluster of eggs and put them in my 55g reefready tank.
