Hi
I`ve had this little octopus for a few months now, and seems to be doing fine, but i really don't have a clue as too which type of octopus it is. The body length is around 4cm long. Obvoiusly changes colour but when it goes really dark shades it has a white stripe down the length of its body.

Oh, certainly not suggesting it's the same species, merely the same colouration :biggrin2:

There are a few pygmy's around that are kept by hobbyists, I guess there's bound to be someone who'll 've done a proper ID before I'd even have typed tolweb.org...
