    We cycle with mollies so the octo has a nice welcome snack. For the cleanup crew, a starfish or some kind of echinoderm. Crabs will be eaten and so will most things. :)

    good point! Most stuff like snails and hermits will get eaten once the octo arrives

    Yup. The only way to get the octo to not eat them is to keep them in the sump until he is big enough not to view them as food.
