Hi all! Can't believe it took me this long to make it over to this forum. I used to be an avid lurker on the ceph list and after that I kind of drifted away from the cephalopod community as I went from researcher to hobbyist. But enough about me, lets talk about the octopus :) My husband (who used to post a lot on tonmo, a few years back) and I purchased the little octopus in question about two weeks ago. We initially thought it was a juvenile bimac (ulatus or uloides), but changed our opinion after she layed eggs. She is about 5 cm ML with short stout arms. she is showing a lot of black on the head and the arms can get very brick red (more orange than a vulgarus). She has eyespots but she's only showed them a few times and they are black with one blue ring. She is a small egged octopus and, according to the store, from indonesia. I haven't been able to take a decent picture since she doesn't show herself much (which is to be expected after laying eggs),so I hope the description will do. I'm hoping anyone here can think of some possible IDs. We did go through MArk Norman's book and found a few maybes, but nothing that really fit. thanks so much!
