    I have about 2 inches of live sand in the bottom of my octo tank- is this not the best for octos? What would be?

    Should be just fine...I usually have thinner sand bed, but I have two friends who have really thick sandbeds, and swear by them...go figure! Good luck with the bimac (s) !

    Are you asking the importance of a DSB, or just asking if LS in ok?
    Two inches will not become a DSB, but I question the importance of a DSB anyway. Your substrate sounds fine to me.

    Yeah- I have live sand. I hope it's not too coarse for the octopus. I read that somewhere...
