Those pics are not really clear enough to even guess accurately.

Where was the octopus caught? How long is the mantle (head) and How long are the arms? The ratio of arm length to mantle length can be very helpful is IDing these guys.

Mercatoris might be a good guess if it is from FL, but he seems pretty active for a nocturnal species. Although its hard to tell activity level froma few pics

No I got him from Ebay! HE called him a dwarf octopus but I really don't know.
