Keeping an octopus would be very interesting.
It's a highly intelligent species, and may out-smart you!

I have kept an octopus before, one that my friend unintentionally hooked at bedok jetty.
extremely smart animals, octopi are the very best of escape artists. an octopus-proof tank can be a hassle to set up considering all the equipment involved with saltwater, but is not impossible.
they are almost always kept in a species tank as they will either eat/kill/be eaten by other tankmates.
an overpowered skimmer is a must in the event that your oct does "ink" the tank.
in all, an animal with specialised needs and would need a specifically designed system. do not that these are not long-lived creatures, but they are highly entertaining, rewarding animals to care for.
