I believe I finally ID 'ed my octo now. From the pics I have found I think it is commonly know as A "shortarm sand octopus" There is no scientific name. It seems that there is not a lot of info on this species. I thought there were only 2 species in Hawaii but found a website that list about 4. Seems like they maybe confusing juveniles with adults and classifing them as different species . Here is the link with the pic

Sorry...not on this end ! Be sure to document as much as you can, so other keepers can gain a reference!
