Where'd you get him from and what size tank do they need?
He got it from one of his friends I think that had one at an aquarium shop. Vulgaris species aren't that common to get despite it being the most common octopus around the world.

You'd need a 100+ gallon tank for Vulgaris cuz they can grow large w/ 3 ft. long tentacles.

Beautiful!!!!
Does he have any more? I have ordered from Tampa Bay Saltwater, but Richard hasn't seemed to find one yet.
