Hmm, i actually wasn't able to get it to play. I know this is stupid, and I have a request to get this fixed soon, but could you please add your videos here?

I would be very comfortable suggesting this is A. aculeatus. Please consider adding at least one place where it can fully hide. Without a safe hiding place, it will be stressed and be less active. A full tank of rockwork is recommended.

A note of caution. I believe this one is full grown, typical of many octos from Indonesia. Since octopuses have a very short lifespan (between 1 year and 18 mo for most warm water species that we keep as hobbyists), be prepared for a wonderful but short time with your new ward. Here is a link to a thread containing a collection of posts that I recommend all new octo keepers read.
