:lol: hey nomorenames, nice lookin octo! looks kina like mine does. thought he was vulgaris at first but not so sure. mines very day active or more precicesly at dusk and dawn. he also lacks any spots below the eyes but will occasionly flash stripes. usually horizontal but occasionly one big vertical one. i have pics under the thread so many questions, so little croutons. out of curiosity what is yours eating? mines been eatin shucked oysters and will ocasionly chew up a frozen shrimp but so far nutin live yet. although he was tormenting one of the snails in my tank by dragging it up and down the glass. but i checked this morning and suprisedly the snail was still alive, just pissed off.
