Well I went into the LFS to see if they got my octo in for me.
They had it. Now they told me it was just labeled Common Octo on the distributor list.
So that could be anything...I really cant tell. I am almost certain its not a bimac since its missing the 2 spots.



I know the pics suck for ID but he is still pretty shy.

Oh yea..Ignore the heater thing cause its unplugged right now. Keeping the tank at about 68-69

he is a small little guy..I am just trying to figure out what he is.
My buddy got a dwarf off them last week and was only 15bucks for a dwarf.
Well I got mine this week and was listed as a common octo and was 50bucks.
I am just trying to make sure I didnt get ripped off and got a dwarf for alot more.
but in my one pic up there I think i see an eye spot on the one side..so it MIGHT be a bimac

Looks like a gravid female, possibly A. aculeatus. Looks like her skin is already starting to lose the ability to express complex color patterns and papillae. I would give her a couple of weeks tops until she lays eggs.
