Hey just wondering if octopi are like fish in that they will gorge themselves. If i put a new octopus in a tank with a bunch of snails, and crabs will it stuff itself to death?

if anything, most of them are finicky eaters...like siamese cats or Cooper's hawks. Just getting them to eat enough is usually the problem!
