Cephalopods: A World Guide lists O. filosus as a small-egged species - therefore the young would be planktonic and almost impossible to raise.

Nesis (1982/1987, p. 303) says egg length for O. hummelincki is 1.6-1.8mm. He gives its distribution as 'Tropical western Atlantic from the Bahamas and southern Florida to Baia (Brazil); Caribbean Sea. Mainly near islands, on coral reefs in upper sublittoral.'
