This is Nymphadora, I've had her for a little over a month now :) LFS said she's from the Pacific.
O. boki is a dwarf octo with arms to 8 cm. It's hard to tell from your photos, but she looks a bit big for that. She looks like a macro pus with those long arms. Also, do you see a pair of large dark spots on the underside of the mantle? Now that you know what to look for, she's never going to show you that part of her body...
I've never seen any spots on her. She's almost a rusty red to a deep red color most of the time.
@Erica, I vote with @sedna on the Id. We have recently decided that this common red nocturnal is Callistoctopus aspilosomatis a nice tank sized nocturnal usually from the Philippines. You can use the search function for O. macropus or the species name for more journals on this little guy. I have kept a couple and found them very interactive (albeit at 3:00 AM) and very hardy.
Thank you guys! :)
What a charming name you've given her!
With your permission, I would like to rename your thread to Nymphadora - Callistoctopus aspilosomatis and move it to the journals section with hopes that you will keep a record of your adventures with her.
Hi @Erica, how's Nymphadora doing? I agree with @DWhatley, let's get a journal going with this one!
