I have at this moment a certain degree of trepidation to the size that these photos will be when uploaded!

If they are to big I apologise in advance!!!

However...

...meet Silas! :tongue:

He's absolutely beautiful! I love the little spikes above his eyes. Seems as curious about you as you are about him! Best of luck with him!!!

Hi Softmick

Very nice pictures and nice looking octopus, thanks for sharing!!!

Don't think it is a vulgaris though.

What shop did you get the octo from and any idea which wholesaler they use? That can go a long way in determining which species it is. I live in the UK too and have a fairly good idea of who gets in what. Getting a bimac or vulgaris is never easy here :cry:

Looks like a horridus complex octopus, perhaps aculeatus or similar species.

The more pics the better, keep them coming
Cheers
Colin

I acquired him from Wilmslow Pets and Aquatics near manchester airport and was told that he was ordered through KKC.

As for "horridus complex octopus", is that as bad as it sounds???
