    hey everyone. it's been a while since i've been on here. i really want to try an octo in my reef tank. theres only one fish and thats a clown. i was thinking some sort of dwarf. i don't mind it being nocturnal. i've kept a few octos before and i miss not having one. theres an octo on reef scavengers and i was wondering if anyone could take a guess at what it is. i don't think the picture is acurate because the picture looks like a briareus. any help would be great thanks!

    Same old picture they've been using, O. macropus, which is far from being a dwarf.

    So, they're either A) lazy and using the picture of an O. macropus to represent a random octopus they have in-stock, or B) It's an O. macropus and they labeled it as an "Atlantic Pygmy Octopus" which would be very unfair to the octopus considering the care requirements they list.

    I would stay away from reefscavengers - they owe me 389$ as a refund and have been saying they would send it, but not sending it, for a year.

    I would avoid them just by their name, via principle.
