I am very interested in taking on a bimac as a pet. Before I make the decision, I would like some input from current or past bimac owners on what I will need to make caring for an octopus a successful experience. I have done some research, but I would find the advice of someone who has cared for these creatures to be very valuable. I want to make sure I can be a suitable caretaker, and am curious what the costs, diets, and time/effort required are when considering getting a pet like an octopus. Thanks in advance!
