is it required to have a 30 gallon tank for bimac octopus? ( octopus bimaculoides)
LARGER!!! 30 gallons is not big enough for a bimac- I just saw that on a seller’s page and it made me cringe! As stated above, at least 55-60 gallons and a chiller are needed for a bimac.

They had 55-75 gallon tanks on sale at pet smart and petco for like less than $100. Not sure how much you're willing to spend but that was a hella deal!
