    will this be ok ?

    i love the guy but he doens perform enough action for my 240 , im missing out on keeping stuff like tangs and triggers, which are my favorite fish ,

    and I think that in the 55 the octopus would feed more homey, knowing that there insnt forever fields of rock out there that a predator could be lurking behind

    Yes, a 55 would be OK and you could make a nice home for him in a tank that size. You still need the skimmer and good filtration.
