After 10 months of waiting for a (healthy) octopus to appear, with an empty tank. Yesterday was the day. There it was in a little plastic container. The label read : "Octopus." The price was $89.99. I had a look at him, and he seemed extremely healthy. The LFS informed me that he hasn't inked once, and is already eating frozen foods. I bought him. I.D is in process. At first i though Mercatoris, but his mantle is about an inch and a half in length, much larger than any Mercatoris. He is about 3 and a half inches in diameter. He is red in colour. I will post pics soon, because it is bad luck to post pics on the first day (because every time I do that, the animal in question dies...) he is in my 45 Gallon Tank. I haven't tried feeding him yet.
