There is a problem with phoenix or octane.
1. Both grids' preview must be set to mesh or octane wont render liquid mesh not sure why octane can never render without preview as a mesh
2. If you try to render you will get strange looking ocean on frame 1 and usually GPU failure on frame 2. Please render frame 180 - and up
