My LFS has a new octopus from the caribbean. Arms about 5-6 inches, mantel about 1-2 inches, nocturnal, yellowish-white brown skin at rest, cash reddish brown when agitated, no visible eye spot, slight purplish color around suction disks, very long arms compared to mantel, skin texture rough. I want to say vulgaris because it doesn't look like briareus. Need help asap please.

Change of plans, I think I will get this octopus. My wife and I discussed the options of what we could put in the tank and I think its going to be another octopus.

So this little guy definately does not want to acclimate in a bag. He crawled out twice before I eventually gave up and put him inside the bucket. He's not shy at all. The tank is still pretty cloudy and as he acclimates so does the bucket cloud. Pictures will come though.
