I got this lady from Liveaquaria. She was sold to me as a "medium Indonesian octopus" based on the mantle size. With that ID system, they would sell you a baby GPO as a dwarf! At any rate, I am thinking she's O. boki. Within two days she had begun brooding in this rock. That was about two weeks ago. I am hoping these are large egg two babies, so I might have a chance of raising them. We'll see… As of yesterday she is still taking food on a stick.
