I definitely think that Hex has been my favourite octopus to follow through TONMO. He's displayed some really beautiful colours and patterns. Love the pics!

Cheers!

Yes it is a vulgaris for sure. But, in USA, do you have this sp. in your coasts? What sp there exist inside of the genus Octopus in your country?(bimaculatus, bimaculoides and any think else?) Here in spain coast, there only exist vulgaris inside of Octopus genus.

O. vulgaris can be found south of Nova Scotia, Canada (though probably not very common), through the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico. Also on the Pacific coast in the Sea of Cortez and off Baja, California.
Here and click on one of the mappers above.

Others in Octopus include briareus, burryi, californicus, defilippi, filosus, joubini, and macropus. (From Cephbase's Biogeography search under USA's Economic Exclusive zone.)

Cheers!

Great pictures and I'll agree main_board and say "Hex" has some wonderful coloration.

One question; do you keep a cover over the top of your tank? It didn't look like it from the pictures
