Thanks for that info. But, now I am debating between fish and an Octopus. I just cant decide.

IMO an Octo is a bad idea and if your new to the hobby you should not even be thinking about it. Do you really want to take a chance of killing it just because its cool? Thats not the responsible thing to be doing here.
You need to take baby steps in SW because only bad things happen fast in this hobby. Not sure how much they cost but do you want to be tossing that much $$ away? Thats what you may be doing.. Like others say making the tank octo proof will be hard with the overflow boxes and return lines.

BinaryTerror - You need to FIX your Heater position still.

I just now watched the video and it's in danger of going belly up based on it's location. Lay it sideways to you keep the entire thing underwater. You are like 4 inches out of the water. In order to be at the "Correct" level your SUMP would need to be filled to the top and about 1/4 inch higher.

Based on the tank layout I'd position on the side of the 10gal sump at an angle.
