    Hey everyone! I recently acquired a bimac a week ago. He is wonderful and seems to be doing well, he eats about 4=5 ghost shrimp a day and seems much bigger. Here is my questions. THere are both bristle worms and aitplasia in the tank. Will the octopus suffer from either? THanks for help to the newbie!! :roflmao:

    The Aptasia will probably quickly become a problem I think that Joe's juice has pretty good results. As for the bristle worms, they shouldn't be a problem (yet) if their number significantly increases than maybe you should look into ridding of them.

    May I ask how you obtained your Bimac from the NRCC?

    Robinspa,
    Would you mind starting a journal for your bimac? If you are keeping it in a classroom, it may even be helpful for your own records and the kids and parents can see pictures easily on-line (and may interest some of the adults in ocean care). It is helpful to title a new journal with the animal's name and species and first entries to include where the animal came from as well as something about its acclimation.
