Question Octopus

I am currently considering getting a bimac octopus for my 125 gallon in the future. Is there any information you could give me considering if these are a good octopus to keep. Also, is a 125 gallon big enough? It's 72" x 18" x 24". Those are the outside measurements. The glass is approximately 1/2 inch think on all sides so if you subtract an inch off those numbers you'd end up with the inner dimensions. I've researched this octopus thoroughly but would still like some input on whether it's a good idea. I'm not getting it immediately so you may take your time. If you can't answer my previous questions, could you tell me where I might find a good forum who discusses these wonderful creatures. I already know of TONMO - The Octopus News Magazine Online so if anyone knows of any others I'd greatly appreciate it! Thanks!

I think if all aquatic organisms were to go extinct, I'd go mad.<---I envision this as what I'd be doing!

Re: Octopus

California Two-Spot Octopus Fast Fact – If you do consider getting a pet Bimac Octopus then it is important to know that their life-span is fairly short. They typically only live for about one or two years. You will know when they are reaching the end of their road as the female will lay her eggs. If you have a male, well, they will begin to go senile.
Evidently the Site you found is the biggest.
