Hi all,

I've put together a new Bimac Care Sheet, which is available from our Ceph Care page. I hope this will help people thinking of getting a bimac.

Have a look at it:

I have gone a conservative route with the guidelines. For instance, octos can tolerate a bit more nitrates than listed, but can the 2-month old ones? We don't know yet.

Also, much discussion went into the recommended temperature for keeping a bimac in a home aquarium. People do sometimes keep them at higher temperatures, and with success, but indications are it may shorten the bimac's lifespan.

So hope you like it!

Nancy
