    Hello! So I have started this thread on a couple of other sites but always enjoy hearing feedback, etc so figured I would start one here as well! The tank is 7 feet tall, 5 feet wide, and 8 feet long. The 3 acrylic panels are 2" thick with the 2 sides having the dimensions 5 x 4 and the front 5...
  2. Non Coral Dominated Systems
    Time for my blue-moon post! Ya know, cause I hardly post here. Shame, really... Anyway I figured I'd bring up a thread about one of the most curious group of marine animals, the Cephalopods. I know that some people do keep Octopi as pets, usually sold as Assorted Octopus. I also know that they...

  4. Non Coral Dominated Systems
    In general I am curious if any of you have kept any of the three mentioned in the title. I've seen Octopus and cuttlefish kept as pets, but never squid. Has anyone ever kept squid? is it possible? But im mostly interested in Octopus and Cuttlefish. Both seem interesting and I just wanna know...

    Hello all - I'm new to this forum and look forward to learning a ton. Several years back I had a successful fish-only 55g saltwater acrylic tank. Once I sold the setup, I figured I'd never get back into it if only because of cost. Fast forward to today, a good friend of mine had his 90g tank...

  8. Skimmers & other filtration
    Hello, long time looker, first time poster. I have been mightily impressed with your vast knowledge and experience with skimmers. To make an incredible long story, even more incredibly shorter, I will sum up tank history. 155 gallon bow front AGA tank. Two corner over flows, 40 gallon sump...

    Hey gang I have a pet octopus and I know they are very intellectual. I was wondering if there is any fun challenges I can present to him/her? Or pushing it even further.. Is there any TRICKS that you can teach them? I've been looking online for challenges/tricks already but it is very...
  10. LPS Coral Forum
    Hi Folks, I went to LFS yesterday to get a Frogspawn Coral and in the Euphilia section were the normal FS's they also had what was listed as an "Octopus" Coral. It was a beautiful colour and I had never seen one before so bought it (the guy said it was the same care as a "normal" FS)...

    Ok, reading through Coralvue's website, I notice something very interesting... Ok, Octopus is offering new "Space saver" versions of their very good and very basic skimmer under the "Classic"/NWB label. They have the 110 and 150 numbering. For those looking for budget friendly space-saver...

    Hello all! I'm currently on a build for a 50 gallon caribbean reef octopus tank and i want to know what would be the best external pump to not only add flow to the display ( only flow because i do not want to put circ pumps in display in fear of the octopus getting caught in the props) , but...

  15. Reefing Equipment
    I'm beginning a new build on a 120 and looking for my skimmer. I've got it down to the SRO 2000int or Diablo dcs170. I'll be running it in a 55 gallon sump so total water volume of around 175. Are these enough or is one better then the other?

  17. Skimmers & other filtration
    Would having an Octopus BH2000 on a 20g tank with a maroon clownfish and a couple damsels be considered overskimming? I'd like the pump on the skimmer to be the only method of water movement which is why I chose this size, plus it would be nice to have if I ever upgrade, but that won't be for a...

    My new purchase to my reef tank is a skimmer. It is the Reef Octopus hang on the back skimmer bh-1000. I read a lot of good reviews on here about the skimmer so I bought it for my 40 gallon reef tank. I am really excited to have it arrive as it should arrive later this week, I am hoping around...

    I am aware of how difficult keeping an octopus is. Has anyone had any experience with these creatures? What kind of breed, size, price, etc.

    Just did a 15gal WC in my 125, and my NWB150 is acting up. It seemed to be dialed in, but now after the WC it is spitting a ton of MicroBubles from the run off valve. It did not do this before, I opened up the Pin Wheel just to make sure there was no debris bound up, and everything is the same...
