Do octopuses eat daily as much as they can?
-I think about my trout fish they are almost always hungry. I remember when I kept a lobster and he didn't necessarily eat every day. I hope that I remember this right.

Over the years keepers have varied their feeding habit with no notable single success. I fed my Caribbean, warm water animals as much as they wanted daily until they were adult (basically when they started eating less at one time) and then fasted one day a week. Others have fed to satisfaction every other or every two days (most of these were cold water species if I remember correctly). I don't believe an octopus will overeat.
