My one LFS and how they kept their latest OCTO. Very Touchy subject.

Swimdude,
Buying a critter to save it because the LFS doesn't know how to house it is a topic discussed in most forums dedicated to a specific species. The most persuasive (but now always followed by those of us that agree) argument is to leave the creature to die because it will likely prevent the purchase of more and purchasing it will only encourage further abuse and death. Easier said than done and often depends on the shopper's ability to successfully effect a rescue. In your case, you will jeapordize your exiting octo as well as the new one as you assumed.
