    I want a octopus, but i have a 10 inch puffer. I think the octo would be smart enugh as long as i have plenty of hideing spots for him. the puffer is poisionous so i don't think he will get eaten, but i thought i should ask.:confused:

    That's a pretty big puffer, I don't think it would end well for the octopus. We had another member who put a cuttlefish and a puffer together. The puffer ate the cuttle :sad:. I wouldn't recommend this.

    Octopuses are smart, but they aren't invincible. It wouldn't be a good idea.
