so I had a slow leak in my tank and had to switch everything to new one. During this my octopus came out of his rock he has been hibernating in and I got a good look at him for first time in few weeks. Can anyone tell if this is a dwarf? He isn’t supposed to be but I got him online so??? It’s from Indo-pacific and was hoping it was a cyanea but I thought he would be bigger by now. I have had him for two months and he was about 1-2 inches when I got him. I thought they grew much quicker but this is my first one. Thanks!

Please consider journaling your experience! We love reading ceph adventures and the journals are very helpful to new keepers. I am always happy to try to help but ID's are tricky even for the scientists.

I understand and I definitely will. I def enjoy him already and I haven’t even seen him much yet. I guess these pics don’t help? Only couple weeks after I got him. If the pics don’t load then just ignore. I don’t know why my phone won’t load them sometime. Thank you again

From the advertised photo (which may be representative vs actual), and from tentative ids of other animals that have shown up over the last year, I'll give a hesitant guess of O. bocki.
