Question Cephalopods

Has anyone had experience keeping Cephalopods in the home aquarium. I am particularly interested in small Octopus (non-venomous please) and small members of the squid family. Is there a website that you could recommend that specializes in Cephalopods?

I have not kept them, but I have read up on them I was tinking of keeping them.
They are short lived about 2 years for most.
Also they are escape artist they can get out of almost any space, and are strong enough to lift most canopy.
They have to be kept by themself, as they will eat most, even hermit crabs or snails.
We are going to have a good speaker on them in June 11, 2010, Richard Ross
If you want to try them don't miss that meeting.

I found a few elemental websites about Cephlapods that are of interest. The links in BOLD are the most informative, the rest are excellent pictures.

A word of caution: The beautiful Blue Ringed Octopus pictured in some of these links, looks like the perfect Cephlapod for the Home Aquarium because of it's coloring and very small size, IT IS NOT! It is one of the most venemous and toxic creatures in the sea. It's bite will kill an adult person very quickly unless anti-venin (which is not available outside of large Public Aquariums) is injected quickly. Leave this one to the Professionals!
