Some people say keeping marines is easy, I never found it easy and it cost me a lot of money to find out. If you have never kept marines before it may be worthwhile starting out with something a lot less challenging than octopus and cuttlefish, once you get things right you can progress from there.

An Octopus is a fantastic idea mate. I found this if it's any use to you.


What an amazing looking animal in an aquarium.
