make sure you cover all holes where equipment leaves/enters the tank.

Use a tight fitting lid with no gaps and maybe even a weight on top of the feeding hatch or use dact tape to hold it shut.

Bimacs are not so prone to escapology as other species

But don't get complacent just because bimacs aren't prone to escape. If you plan to use weights to secure lids, know that octopuses are very strong. :wink:
