truthfully on my tank it never killed anything but maybe thats cause the trigger fishes and lion fish were tripple it size, i also had a damzel and clown fish in there before giving them away to my father in law, i gave him the octopus since i want to do a reef tank now and he's told me he almost doesnt want it cause it ate his yellow tang, his damzel and also a cleaner shrimp or something like that, i guess it just depends on the size of your fishes or maybe i just got lucky lol

I have always wondered how you would keep the tank clean if you can't keep snails and crabs with a octopus?

I always wondered that 2 when I had reef fishes in there my tank was always dirty once I switched to predator tank I never had to clean the tank the few times I would clean it would be by the outside cause of the finger prints and just the normal water change a 15-20%
