    Males can live about 2 years, females only live around 6 months. The main thing being you have no idea how old they are when you get them, they could be nearing the end of their life
    Lots of tanks

    I don't think one should under estimate the IQ of an Octopus.

    The Seattle Aquarium has some interesting experiences... where fish in tanks were going missing... and eventually discovered one of their octopi in a nearby tank was going for a nightly forage to nearby tanks, and then returning to his home tank.

    They've had a giant octopi escape from a tank that was capped with a plywood board topped with a cinderblock to weigh it down.

    They figured they could keep a shark of larger size in a big tank with the octopi... and found out they were wrong.... you can find videos of this on the internet.


    Granted you are looking at a smaller octopi... but somethings are good to leave up to nature.

    There are plenty of very interesting sea creatures you could enjoy without the lethal risks involved with one so deadly. Since they are plentiful in the waters of your area, you might be better off viewing them in their natural habitat, at a safe distance. If an octopus can escape a well-secured public aquarium, it can easily escape anything you set up. This doesn't sound prudent to me. Why play with fire?

    The blue ring octopus is native to the pacific Around Japan and Australia. From Genocidex's info, he lives in Massachusets

    in dead aeon XD i wish they were native to here.
    "but i think i wont get a blue ring cause i dont want to help collecting of rare species....." ill be getting octopus but most likely not a blue ring.... get an acrylic tank and make the only access port air right and screw it on. 8+bolts coming up from the tank would hold it fine :P... the only holes would be very small holes for air...

    Sorry, Geno -- had you confused with the poster who lives in Australia. Anyway, I'm glad you've decided against getting the blue ring. Far too dangerous ...
