I recently bought a 40 gallon tank from my uncle for very cheap. It came with a power filter, thermometers, test kits, you name it, it came with it. I was setting it up, putting water in, salt, ect., and I got to thinking...what should I out in this tank...the first thing that came to mind was an octopus. Would a 40 gallon be a suitable sized tank for a bimac? If not, I can get my hands on one of the infamous "Bali octopus", which I assume is an O. bocki, but I will not buy it unless I am sure of the ID. I have always wanted an octopus, as many of you know from my former posts, and now I think I cna actually do it. I have a bait shop nearby which I am sure sells crayfish, shrimp, and fiddler crabs for very cheap. I also have access to all the live rock I want for prices unimaginable. My mom is going right now to pick me up some very fine grain sand. I have a heater, but I doubt I will need it since summer is coming up. Do you guys think this set up sounds ok?
