How long does it take a bimac to reach it's full size. I've had The Pope for a few weeks now. Right now he's about the size of a grape, so I know he's still fairly young. Thanks.

There are too many varients to give an accurate idea to you but at a typical tank and typical octopus its somewhere between 8 and 12 months.....

but that's open for debate :)
