Small Octo & Fish Question


Sep 2, 2006
Hi all - I have a question concerning a small octopus, about 2 in, and some fish. I currently have 2 large damsels and a med/lg clownfish; will an octo of this small size eat these guys right away? I realize he will as he gets older & bigger, but what about now at this size? Any hope for their survival now? Any help would be great!
Actually, your octopus might be in more danger than your fish! We don't recommend putting fish and octopuses together - many times the fish, especially damsels, will go for the octopus's eyes and keep him from coming out of his den. On the other hand, at a certain size, the octo may catch and eat the fish.
