Hi There,
I have two octos a bimac and vulgaris. I've run into a slight situation with my vulgaris. He seems to really enjoy ripping appart my live rock and creating his own aquascape(which is Fine) My only concern is that I'm afraid he may hurt himself one of these days. So I was wondering if any one had used any glue to anchor their rock and if so what kind? I know it has been discussed but I'm kinda paranoid about what I put into my tanks.

There are non-toxic epoxies that will cure underwater that a lot of people use to glue their rock together. Check out a good local LFS or some of the mail-order websites like www.liveaquaria.com or www.thatpetplace.com

Yep, those are all good products. The only problem with that is, the octopus is quite strong, and may actually topple the whole construction, resulting in a broken tank.
It might be better to just let him do his re-arranging!
