Hi Dingo, welcome to TONMO.com :smile:

Keep posting pics of that octo, more you post better chnace we have of figuring what it is :smile:
Think I found your octo - Octopus cf tetricus or known as the common Perth Octopus, pg. 277 of Cephlapods, A World Guide for those of you that have this!
thankyou for that we thought thats what he might be but always good to double check but hes cool anyway we collect live food for the both of them once a week so they can snack on white bait and boxer shrimp all week long and also we supply them with frozen food as well
more wa occie pics

heres some early photos of the occie just around when we first got him he was so small then

These are wonderful pics! He's not only cute, but he's also a very happy-looking occie. I like the tank, too, very nice shells.
