He was just to big for a 50 gallon over two feet from tip to tip. He is now @ an LFS being the store pet. Good thing is he's only 8 months old so he has allot more time to live.

Glad you were able to find a good home for your octopus.

We probably should be recommending bigger tanks for bimacs - maybe 75 gallons, with 50 as a minimum.

If you treat them well, bimacs do seem to thrive!

No it had solid rings.....just got an extra large one I guess. I am thinking of getting some Cuttle fish but only time will tell.

Oh, joy :bonk:. I had to tear down the tank and they kept trying to net him. First time I did this he got in the net and fast as I could lift him out he walked out of the net. Next time I got a face full of water from his funnel and the 3rd try he inked. But the 4th time I was lucky enough to get him into a bucket and rush him over to the LFS.
