yea im pretty confident it's briareus. I find it so weird that i live in Florida (where briareus are commomly found) yet i cant find anyone thats currently selling one. haha, thats the pet trade i guess. Just wondering, at what time does he usually come out?

The eyes look like a briareus and it's nocturnal. Does it have deep webbing? and do you ever see an iridescent blue-green color?

Nice octopus!

Sorry I missed the part about the webbing - I had looked at this thread before and just skimmed over it again.

It's good if we actually hear the description (like the blue green color) from the owner, photos can be deceiving. So far it could be a briareus.

Thats good news, is the octopus mostly nocturnal or getting used to being out through the day?
