    It might be just fine - on the other hand, I've heard of octos (older than your little bimac) snapping them off and putting them in front of their dens :smile: Your bimac won't eat a featherduster - it's a worm. Worth a try - you have a big tank so he has room to roam.

    Feather dusters won't be eaten ( as least not in my case) but they might be killed unintetionally by falling rocks caused by the octo.

    never seen one biger than 4" in the trade but 10 would be nice :)

    kept them in with cuttles and they thrived but always thought octos would be too destructive
