I would already like to have her in a larger tank. The typical suggestion for O. briareus is 75 gallons, but I'd suggest a 100 or more really. As long as she doesn't grow too much more she'll be fine where she is. I'd just like for her to have more room to actually swim. She could grow quite a bit more, as this species arm span can potentially reach ~48 inches. Right now it's about 30 inches.
Her growing has slowed down over the past month. For the first couple of months she doubled in size weekly.
