    I know its nothing like some of the tanks here.
    My 20gal and I am using a Penguin Bio-Wheel 350 for it
    Got the fine gravel in the bottom almost like a large sand. Easy for it to burrow if it likes. Now I just gotta wait the 2months or so to get it cycled in. Guess that will give me ample time to decorate it all for it.

    Hopefully I will have good luck this time again as I did with my last octo.

    It may have survived but it's NOT ideal. The minimum tank size to keep a bimac in heathly conditions is 50G. 20G hasn't enough room for the bimac to grow to its normal size and I would assume that you weren't feeding as much as the octi required otherwise your water chemistry would have been very unstable.......please consider getting a larger tank.

    OK I'll get off my soapbox now :grin:
