Anyone ever keep an Octopus Leteus (Starry Octopus)? I just got a pretty good book called "Marine Invertebrates: 500+ Essential-To-Know Aquarium Species" By Ronald Shimek, P.H.D. and was reading about them. They sound pretty cool. The book attempts to give tips for keeping animals, but it hasn't been very accurate so far in comparison to the things i've read on TONMO. But yea, anyone keep one?

One kid on here got one many months ago from LiveAquaria. They seem fairly similar to O. briareus as far as appearance and size goes. The one the kid got was very nocturnal.

"Starry Night" Octopus right?
