What is the minimum tank size for a Bimac to live happily? I do not want cramped apperences.
thanks

Hi JJ,

Most people say 30-35 gallons is the minimum. An adult bimac can have a body slightly under 5 inches, and arms to almost 14 inches, so you might be more comfortable with a slightly larger tank, if you want a feeling of spaciousness.

I'll be honest. I set up a 30 gallon for my bimac because I was on a cash limit and now that she's in there and I see how much they do explore, I'll set up at least a 55 before I buy another one.

Hey all:

I have Tralfaz in a 55 gal tank and he has explored every inch of it. In fact, he seems to have set up 3 or 4 different little burrows. Can make him quite difficult to find :cry:
