    I had an octo about 6 months ago. He was a pet at my work and im in charge of keeping the tank up.

    Well the octo died a while back and we put a stars and stripe puffer in the tank after his death.

    now everyone wants and octo again........Is that even an idea to be thought about?

    Lastly these white critter that used to be all over the back tank glass are everywhere in the tank. they dont seem to be buggin anything but do any of you know what they might be. they look like little white worms a 1/8 of an inch long.

    Amphipods on the glass?...are they definitely worm like, or like tiny bugs? The puffer with an octo doesn't sound like a good idea with me, how big is the tank though?

    Yup, puffer with an octo would be a bigtime no-no, they can be very aggressive. There's video on here in the video gallery of a porcupine puffer snatching a little cuttlefish out from under a rock. They can nip the spines off of a lionfish too, just a heads up.

    Puffers are excellent predators themselves. Some of my favorite freshwater fish also...hoping to get a Fahaka soon.
