    I am getting ready to set up the permament home for my Octopus and am wondering if I can put a few corals in the tank with the Octopus, or would I be better off with just having rockwork in the tank. Advise anyone :confused: :confused:

    You would be better off with just rocks, but corals are definatly doable. You can have things like Xenia, and maybe SPS and zoos. But I bet that the Octo crawling over the SPS and zoos would stress them out. Oh, and I bet most, if not all leathers are OK with octos. HTH and good luck!

    but also remember that strong lighting(for the corals) is not the ideal for most octos. they would just rather have it with no lights
