Could you give us any more information? Is it active at night? What is it's coloration? Does it have any eyespots? Does it have any bumps that stick up over it's eyes? Any stripes? Any particular habits? Any idea what part of the world it is from?

I could.

It is as active as it gets all the time. Seems to catnap for a bit then wander the tank over the 24 hr period.

Mottled brown. (ie: picture)

Eyespots... definite maybe. Appears to have a deviation in pattern there, more orange than mottled brown.

The bumps stick up over everything, not just its eyes.

Not striped, mottled.

Habits? Mostly fiddling with stuff in the tank, then hiding. Oh, some dirty looks too.

I have no idea what locale it was scooped from.

This appears to be Abdopus aculeatus, a species that is flooding the market from Indonesia. They occur on shallow reef flats in Australia and Indonesia, are day active, voracious eaters, and if you have an adult (which you seem to have), a female will lay her eggs and begin brooding within weeks and males will senescence in about the same amount of time.
