Well after moving my 55gal sw tank into a 90gal and having the tank sealed, I have finnally ordered a new bimac :) It should be here on Tues.

I think im ready for another one. The other fish i have kept just cant do it for me like and octo :P Hopefully it will be happy in the 90gal set up.

Nancy, did you find a reliable source for live food in the area, the one i was using for Sam has closed.

I ordered from Jack at fishsupply.

Thanks for the welcome back :wink:

I had such a hard time after the loss of Sam and Jam. I really didnt think i would ever own another octo. The fact is ,,,Im hooked :P Now that i have a bigger tank and have taken alot of time making sure the tank is set up correctly i ordered another. I also moved the 55gal brackish tank out of the room so not to give the new octo any ideas of free feeding from the other tank like sam did. I covered all intakes of the power heads and have secured the tank well...... New octo name will be Max :wink:

Hi Debbie,

Somehow I thought we'd be hearing from you again. Sounds like you've got a nice setup for your new octi.

I ended up using several different fish markets, just for convenience. The main one I used was TJ's on Preston/Forest, then also Whole Foods at various locatons, Captain Dave's in Plano. I was feeding fresh scallop (later Ollie turned against scallops), frozen shrimp and live fiddler crabs and shore shrimp from Florida. She liked more things when she was younger - also hermit crabs and turbo snails.

So a big welcome for Max! Is Max wild caught or tank raised? (I don't know whether tank raised bimacs are always in stock.)

I just wondered whether the tank raised ones were always available. I sure it will be tank raised if those are available this time of year. But the original bimac siblings we got last spring were wild caught, because the tank raised ones were not available until a few months later. Ollie was among them.
