There appear to be some relatively large individuals in that blue container. A look at www.cephbase.org might help if you can find out where they are brought in from. Some good shots of the mantle could help.

I can't help with an ID but I will say that I don't think they are dwarfs so choosing a smaller one would likely mean a younger one.

Very strange impression to see octopuses being housed like live lobster.

Not when they are sharing the same fate as lobster. :sad:

it's sad to see such intelligent creatures cooped up like that.

but i guess we can't be anti-calamari, can we? as long as folks like them for some reason, they'll care about whether or not they'll be protected
