Hi

the preffered substrate will buffer the pH, so whether its sand or gravel doeesn't matter too much, except with burrying species which prefer sand, bimac is okay with gravel.

35 is going to get cramped for an adult bimac

Oh, just make sure not to make too much ruckus in the tank, or it'll become stressed and ink, and then you'll never be able to find it again! I don't know how you'll not do this though...

Its going to be tough to get an unwilling octopus out of its tank. It has hundreds of suckers and immense strength, getting him out is going to be difficult. You could ask for advice from the place where you acquired your bimac.

I was thinking about this problem, and if you can engineer a box with a lid, put some food in it, then some how have the lid close with a string when the octo gets in it. I think it will work, but maybe not
