I've seen a small octopus at my LFS in a nano tank with lots of LR and there was one fish in there with it. I think the fish was a Purple Stripe Pseudochromis, but I'm not sure. This is a good family-owned fish store ,too, especially with saltwater fish, so I doubt they would make any mistakes.

I remember a story of an owner who had many saltwater tanks and he kept an octopus. His other tanks kept missing fish and he couldn't figure out what was happening to them, till one day he found the octopus going from a tank and then back to his own. They are extremely intelligent so be very careful. You may be able to buy a reptile cage that has a non-rusting top with special fasteners. When I use to keep snakes I would use metal screened tops and metal clips on every side, these probably won't work because they'll rust out quickly. The metal clips attach to the screen and under the rim of the tank tops plastic. The weighing down option doesn't work real well unless it's very heavy and then it's not good having that on the top of the tank. I found with keeping snakes they would be able to force open the top in the area where it wasnt weighted down and slip through. Thats why most of the reptile keeps use clips.
