    Maybe some of the experts can get somewhere, but for me, at least, I can't see much detail in those pics... does your camera have a way to reduce the exposure? It looks like it's judging the light level based on the white thing (cleaning magnet?) and overexposing the octopus... Also, if you have any info on where Ozzie came from, that could help with the ID.

    Did I say :welcome: ? Anyway dwarf's are usually full grown when shipped, unfortunately. I found I was lucky if I had 2 months with them. He's cute! How is he doing?
