Very cool Tim. I hope you have great success with it. You might try making it a muddy area with some special refugium mud. They love to dig and their natural habitat is muddy.
Keeping Mimics/Wunderpus/Zebra's is controversial. Very rare animals both in the trade and in their own habitat. I'm don't suggest anyone go out and buy one for the best interest of their longevity on Earth but I won't down on anyone for trying to care for them. It's a shame collectors don't understand the impact they make on certain creatures.
I'm not trying to rub you the wrong way Tim, I just can't condone the collection/sale of a rare species until more is known about their wild populations and I feel it's important to bring that to the publics attention so that they too can understand. If you find one at a store and feel the urge to rescue it, well... that's up to you. Unfortunately once they make someone some money, another one is collected to make someone more money.
