I'm trying to figure out what tank mates would work with a bimac I'm getting, so I need some advice.

How abouttt,

Bimac + Snowflake Eel
Bimac + Horseshoe Crab
Bimac + Chocolate Chip Starfish

In the first link you posted there was a video of an octopus almost playing with a ribbon eel. So maybe a different species would be fine, but idk if I even want to take the chance.

I figured the horseshoe would be lunch if it was small enough, but even if that happens no harm no foul.

and I hear the chocolate chips are quite difficult to acclimate, but I might just try it once.
