    Can I have a lettuce nudibranch in my octopus tank? They looked so beautiful at the pet store but I wanted to check with you guys first.

    Wish I could tellya...I had one of those, but I accidentally removed him from the tank before the octo arrived. See, I was plucking out macrophytic leafy algae, and...he liked eating that algae...and he was so well camoflagued... :oops:

    But I know many octos eat snails. So...he might be in jeopardy.

    Aaah....probably best not to risk it then. They might be poisonous.
