The 1st fish
Algae Blenny, Chalk Basslet, Blue Green Chromi
I am contemplating some cleaners, a star fish, sea urchin and a coral. but...
I need to know that they will not harm an octopus, any ideas?
Don't worry about the non-octopus inhabitants, I'm interested in what the octopus tolerates, eats or ignores. What sea creatures live together with an octopus?
I am looking toward something diurnal and larger than a dwarf.
The Red Sea 350 is 75 gallons with a 18 gallon sump. I have the standard filter socks ,Skimmer and loads of Biological filtration media. I have also made a heavy 1 inch thick lid of (I think PTFE ) that covers the entire aquarium quite tightly. The overflow are covered with mesh.
I am thinking three weeks should be enough, but I will wait longer if needed.
The fish will keep me on my toes and support the cycling as I wait to see how the aquarium stabilize.
Things went well with my first aquarium and the two dwarf octopuses, so I don't expect any surprises
The tank is automated using Neptune's APEX system and I regularly use several test kits and biweekly water changes.
I'd appreciate any advice and suggestions, I don't want to make any slip-ups.
Let me know if you know of any O.Bimaculoides, that will be available say in three weeks.
I'll put up some pictures as when the lid is complete. (I am going to keep separate threads, one for the Fluval/Dwarf aquarium and one for the Red Sea 350.)
