Just in case anyone wonders, tank is sealed tight, set up in a low light area and I'm keeping artificial lighting to a minimum. There are currently some snails and hermit crabs in with it. I have offered it silversides and krill, but it has not accepted any yet. I remove any uneaten food and am checking water chemistry every other day right now just to be sure it stays stable.:smile:

ok after the latest pictures I have no idea what kind of octo that is, I dont think Aculeatus now, it seems pretty large.

Welcome from another teacher! I teach kindergarten. It's hard to see, but are the middle two arms a lot longer than the rest of the arms? The middle two arms also appear thicker.

It's great to meet you! Interesting that you mentioned that. I will double check the next time it's out, but I definitely noticed that some tenticles appeared larger and/or longer than others. I just attributed it to the way it's able to manipulate it's body. Could that be a possible way to identify it? Thanks for taking the time to write!
