Hey just joined and am thinking about ordering a octo from octopets. I am would be putting it in a 55g, the tank runs about 72-74deg. It has a canister filter and the light is a standard floresent tube, the top is fits very tight.

Also would a octopus get hurt by a few rock crabs, the biggest is about 2in.

:welcome: smasher

your octopus probably won't be harmed by the crabs BUT as the octi gets bigger your crabs will be history!!

The tank is big enough, but you need a protein skimmer for an octopus.
