Hello all.

Glad to finally find a place to talk about and research my new found friend....aka Oscar

I am new to the world of the octopus and saltwater tanks for that matter. Never the less I have dove in head over heels so to speak and am now the owner of a 30 gallon setup with a brand new Octo. I am hoping some of you could help me I.D. his species, and of course help me gain some insight on the upkeep of these, simply stated, awesome creatures. I have done a great deal of research on the requirements of saltwater tanks and their inhabitants, but nothing tops true experience.

I have a good deal of pics and video and hope that this will help.

Thanks in Advance, and I look forward to chatting with you guys.

Welcome Octo friend. You are an A.Aculeatus from Indonesia. You are an adult and a very good healthy looking octopus. I cant tell if your a he or a she because you have all your arms curled up tight.

I am not sure if it is an A. aculeatus, at first glance, I thought it was a O. hummelincki because the octopus seems more "plump" to me in contrast to your typical aculeatus.

You tank is looking good so far
