  • Description
  • The Brown Pacific Octopus is a smaller and octopus found in the waters of the Pacific Ocean. Brown Pacific Octopus are mostly tan in color with darker brown markings.

    Brown Pacific Octopus are semi-aggressive and should really only be kept in species only tanks. Brown Pacific Octopus do not do well in tanks with fish, other inverts or coral. Tanks need to be specifically built to keep a Brown Pacific Octopus. Brown Pacific Octopus are amazing escape artists and will find any hole to escape out of the tank. Also overflows and powerheads can end up killing a Brown Pacific Octopus.

    Brown Pacific Octopus will end up moving and rearrange the decor in their tanks as well. For this reason, you must make sure that everything in the tank is secure including your rocks. Brown Pacific Octopus have the ability to pull down rocks, which might end up killing them. Brown Pacific Octopus require rocks in the tank so they can retreat and hide during the day.

    Brown Pacific Octopus are carnivores and require a diet that is rich in meaty foods. Foods like pieces of crustacean meat can be offered to your Brown Pacific Octopus. Brown Pacific Octopus will also need some live foods like feeder shrimp. Brown Pacific Octopus are extremely hard to care for and should only be attempted by the most advanced aquarist or those who have had experience with the species before.
