I found this article about keeping octopi. It's a pretty good one! Sounds like a lot of work tho!

Yeah you would have to be way experienced! And from what I hear they can escape or squeeze into your filters. They're crafty fishes!

When I get them I keep them in gerbil balls. Keeps them from escaping. Not pretty in a show tank. Its for wholesale holding. Can excape from any size hole.

You need a complete cover and a micro sock where your water flows from the tank to your filter, and there can be no powerheads in the tank and you need to check the sock alot. I know someone who has one and it gives him nothing but headaches. But it looks so dam cool. Oh and did I mention no fish or crabs. They are all fair game. Even his lion fish gets harrased
