Welcome to Tonmo,
Depends entirely on species, as their size varies greatly, but generally a 50-55 g would work for a bimac.

Well no not really. Either the octo would eat the fish or the fish might eat the octo. What exactly do you have in there?

As long as its legal then fine.. most species outwith Octopus bimaculoides are wild caught... maybe you'll get lucky and catch an Octopus cyanea???

that's a definite 'no' to the fish mixing by the way :)
