Hoping to see other opinions of this little guy that was sent to me.
I was told he was a Caribbean Octopus. Could he be an Atlantic Dwarf octopus?
This little guy is a ton of fun despite his itty bitty size. He is very active and moves about during the day. Spending time watching us.

Curious of others thoughts

Thanks

My initial guess is that he is Indonesian and not Caribbean, something in the Abdopus complex I think.

He is doing great! Named him Lil Bit or LB for short. He has a lot of personality and had started coming to the front to watch out and the day activities. He also was even playing and with the toys I gave him!

Nice 👍 it seems that once they are happy in their tank, they'll take to frozen. Glad it's going well, we like happy updates! 🐙
