Hi! I'm very new to octos(10 days) since I was convinced to bring this guy home from the lfs. I know absolutely very little about these guys, but (Nubbin) did eat out of my hand tonight!

:welcome: Luigi and Nubbin... I'm voting aculeatus, but I suggest waiting for Roy or Mucktopus to chime in before being convinced...

It looks similar to A. Aculeatus, but there are some things about it that strike me wrong. Roy or Mucktopus will be able to give a definitive answer, as Monty said. There is no way that is a bimac :smile:, especially from IO.
