Wavemakers & cephs

Apr 20, 2005
I was wondering does a wave maker have much of an affect on an octopus and how much GPH can an octopus take. I may be upgrading my wave box meaning I would have an extra (one wave 2k-for reef 40,000 GPH) and my RedSea Wave Master Pro would go onto my 55 octopus tank. wich has about.....about 500 GPH) would that be ok for a ceph or more spacific an octopus. The power heads need to be octo proofed but other than than that?
Hmmm. I don't know about that one...most of our captive octos would like a gentle wave pattern. But how are you going to keep him out of the flow trough?
