I went snorkeling and i saw an Ornate Octopus(Octopus ornatus).
Down here in Hawaii we call it the night squid,and it is very very agressive. It wont let you touch it unless you get bitten :roll:

Can it be kept in a tank at home :heee: ?

Looks like a big octo, and therefor needs a big tank! If the Cyanea is any indication, use that as a size ref for tanks. How big do they get, do you know?
