One of the confusions (a minor one, nobody spends much time on this one) is that the plural of octopus is octopuses. This can confuse some native speakers. Below is second link about why this is. If someone says that the plural is octopi, this explains why that is incorrect and octopuses is correct.

Let me know is this is clear. I take these questions seriously. In this case, I think the links are the fastest way to explain octopus.
