What kind of octopus is this? I picked him up at my LFS, and they told me a brown Octopus. That they don't get specs. He's really small. HIs mental is like the size of my pink, maybe an inch. His tentacles are way longer than that. I don't notice any fake eyes, or horns or anything. I did notice him get darker as he's getting pissed. They put a small crab shell in there, and he ran to it and ate it. I was told he'd eat snails, crabs, shrimp. Pretty much anything.
