how do i keep my octo from escapeing
make sure you cover all holes where equipment leaves/enters the tank.
Use a tight fitting lid with no gaps and maybe even a weight on top of the feeding hatch or use dact tape to hold it shut.
Bimacs are not so prone to escapology as other species
But don't get complacent just because bimacs aren't prone to escape. If you plan to use weights to secure lids, know that octopuses are very strong.
You could try breaking its ankles.
All 8 of em?
Well, maybe 6 or 7 would be enough. Personally, I wouldn't leave anything to chance.
or perhap knit little mits for all of its suckers???
Chain it to a post?
tie its arms behind its back
(these are those useless posts i mentioned before eh?)
(that's me, shutting up)
LOL me too
LOL, the mittens would be kinda cool to see. :D
You could always use a piece of copper pipe for the hiding place...that should keep it from escaping!
Realistically, I use nylon screen mesh glued over eggcrate (most lfs will make this for you) held down with clips...no weights necessary, and easy to get in and out of (for you, not the octo)
Which part is an octopuses back?
you planning on breaking it? :D
If they have sumthing in there to break at least. I think tearing its back is more appropriate
Remind me to never anger any of you, or give the impression that I might escape!
How many cups of sugar it takes to get to the moon?
238,857 (total miles) x 5,280 (feet per mile) = 1,261,164,960 (total feet)
1,261,164,960 (total feet) x 12 (inches per foot) = 25,133,979,760 (total inches)
25,133,979,760 (total inches) / 6 (how many segments of two inches a 'cup' in 12 inches) = 4,188,996,626.66666666666666
Would that also not depend on the diameter of the "cup"?
and at what stage the moon is at in its cycle?
