    Ok, some of you may know about the wipeout I've been talking about in my 55 gal FOWLR tank. All that's left is a snowflake eel. I've been thinking I could turn this into an octo tank. I thought that until last night when I realized just how vicious the eel is. I bought a couple damsels, and he chased one around the tank, then ate it overnight, so I don't think he would be good with an octo. I'll probably just wait and buy a different tank, because hey, nothing wrong with a lot of tanks.

    Lucky...Oh well, I decided today that it should be a reef, so I bought a few firefish and damsels, next I'll start with corals. I'll just get a different tank for an octo.

    cthulhu77,
    I'll bet you forgot to count the fuges, feeder, hospital, quarentine and any other temporary/occassional tanks:periscop:
