will a octopus go threw the overflow holes?
i plan on buying a bimac from octopets
Yes they will, curious little buggers. :)
Welcome to TONMO.com from me, too!
We would be glad to have another person keeping a bimac - you'll find lots of good information here.
they can get threw a whole that small? the slit is no bigger than 1/4 of an inch. i am really considering buying this tank how can i get around this problem
It might try and probably could if it's small. :|
Octos can get through any hole their beaks can fit through!
Try this thread.
at octopets it says the mantle size is 3/4-1 inch.has anyone had problems with using overflows with bimacs i just need 2 know if it will be ok before i buy this tank. thanks for the help
with every system there are concerns to the size and you will have to octo proof at your discretion! Some may say a bimac will not crawl out at all. While other feel it best to err to the side of caution. There have been bimac tragedies through the overflow.
You would prolly be better blocking of the Utube like I did, in the thread I posted earlier.
You did so with a weaving mat? What store? :)
Wally World, but a craft store will work.
Do you have a pic of it? :)
If you are interested I will post a pic tomorrow. The tank lights are off right now, and I dont want to use the flash in the dark, sorry. :D
Sure Ill wait. :)
I have an overflow with slits, and I took plastic netting and wove it through the slits. Had to clean it or replace it every month or so, but it worked!
Interesting idea. Mine has slits too. :)
The octo only risks going in while its still small, i will be simply too big when its older, Nancy's suggestion is a good one, you could try that.
Here is the pic
So it didnt block the flow much?
Not this way. Smaller screen did!
How big are the holes?
