not quite sure its a Vulgaris, he has horns that come and go and is mostly out during the day. he eats readily from tongs and is very friendly, he has about a 1-1/4" mantle and about 6" legs, mostly a beige colour until spooked or when eating. VERY ACTIVE when light comes on for about 10 minutes then settles down, prefers to sleep in the bio material. and likes to mimic you, if you lean into the tank he leans into you if you back away he does the same, go figure, lol I have a few of these guys all the same at my facility this one i brought home to get ID'ed I will try and get better pics as well.
I am uploading a video tonight so i can post it here too.

actually he does get the spikes when excite, and he does turn a darker colour when near anything such as LR and filter sponge, he has a white underside most of the time, and he is very skittish and inks at sudden scares. eyespots are more like shadows in the body, and no sign of blue rings on suckers.
