I keep Koralias in with my octos but I put them in a zippered mesh media bag (link is an example, not a recommendation of seller). The bag does not zip fully shut over the cord but is enough to keep arms away from the impeller. You do have to clean it from time to time but the combination has worked well. I gave up on trying to use the magnets and just kind of wedge it into the live rock.

May I move Frank's thread to the journals forum in hopes that you will continue sharing his adventures?

I would retitle the thread Frank - O. vulgaris but there is one other species that may be a distinct possibility. Look at some of the pictures of Margay and notice the distinct diamond shaped pattern of bumps on the mantle. The short arms and general look make me think Frank may be O. burryi (you will notice I originally labeled Margay as vulgaris). Margay was caught in the FL keys so TX is not out of the known range.
