I was wondering if I need to worrie about octo food biteing back. I would think a crab or something could easily rip a hole into the soft skin of any octo. Would I need to remove half of the crabs claws? I know they do it in the wild all the time but I was just thinking.

Thanks

I used to remove 1/2 the claw when I started giving larger crabs, but if you watch how they catch the crabs, one of the things is they position their suckers on the claws so they can't be bitten. Pretty amazing!
