Octopus cylinder aquarium

This coldwater habitat with a water temperature of around 17°C was specially designed for keeping Octopoda. Alongside various escape-prevention devices such as bolted covers, it incorporates a permanently installed artificial rock landscape with integrated retreats, caves and overhangs with current inlets and outlets. Artificial kelp and fucus algae create an authentic habitat.
