    Could be almost anything. We see a lot of Adopus coming out of that area, I dont think we have anyone that has bought an octo from NY aquatics, A few people have bought cuttle eggs from them. Gray in color doesn't sound good to me. 8" spread between arms, octos dont have tenticles, would be a fairly small octopus.

    I purchased a "Bali octo" from NY Aquatics back in May .... it's still alive and well but very small. He/she is in my thread "Can I Buy This Octo?"

    Anxious to hear an update from GPX.
