octopus in synthetic reef tank

I have a tall cylinder tank with an artificial (synthetic) reef in the middle. Have some assorted fish and inverts. I wanted to add a small octopus to the tank. I have seen some articles that said the octopus (Abdophus spp.) wouldn't harm the fish and some other that said it would eventually eat all the other things in the tank. Has anyone had experience with these in their tank?

Don't put them with fish. They will either eat or get eaten.
