Cant help but think now that this is possible I could have made it all as one object. watch this space I might Dynamesh the sculpts and put it all together... scratch that I'll finish what I started first and then try something new! :)

Maya Rigging Bones and IK solvers
So I wasn't too happy with the work flow for rigging this tentacle and I'm certainly not happy about posing them using Zbrush. I just don't seem to get on with the bones and tools to get a nice result. I resorted to learning more new things in Maya. I did rigging years ago at Uni so remembered the concept and thankfully most of the terminology. The following is a a set of bone bound to a predefined curve with an IK solver then skinned to the low res geometry exported from Zbrush. I can then GoZ that back onto various different tools in Zbrush to create my different models to print.
