Octopuses are short-lived; don't expect to keep one for more than a few months to a year, depending on how old yours is when you acquire it. I have an A. aculeatus in one of my office tanks (not listed in my sig), and I spent almost a year prepping the tank for his arrival, with the understanding that I'd likely only have a few months with him.

The best current all-in-one info source on keeping cephalopods is "Cephalopods: Octopuses and Cuttlefish for the Home Aquarium", and's forums are the place to ask questions.
