hey,
i got a bimac about four days ago and he continues to not eat. i have given him frozen shrimp and the other day went out a bought a fiddler crab for him, but he has eaten nothing. What should i do?
 
Hi and welcome!!

Have you checked all your water parameters? If that's fine, he may still be getting used to the new environment. How big is he? I have had great success with hermit crabs to start.

Hi
and welcome to TONMO.com :welcome:

If your bimac is small and you have live rock with amphipods, you bimac could be eating those.

Not all octopuses accept frozen food, especially at first. You might try pieces of fresh scallop.
