:welcome: to the your new friend- does it have a name yet?

It seems to have the "long skinny arms" look of a briareus, but it seems to me to have less webbing than they do (or is that how they look when they're small?) There's now an official "ID Requests" thread floating around here, you might want to post there as well in case people miss it here...

thank you..
ok i have a question (BTW i have researched them so i know a little what im doing but i have no experience with them)
anyway should i feed him tomorow? Or should i let him settle in for a few days before i start feedind him..
also he has more webing then that but he doesnt show it...
he is very active and is out alot... i put him in the tank about 30 minutes ago and he has been exploring non stop.. my friend Andrea wants to name him so im letting her name him....
ill put the pics in to the ID thread.. thank you

this guy is SOO curious.. he is litterally crawling along the front pane looking at me and i am only a foot away.. he doesnt seem to be a secritive octopus which is awesome for me ..
and this is only an hour after introduction to the tank

What are you going to feed him? You could offer right now if he/she is out and exploring... maybe he's hungry.

You might want to get a variety of foods in case your octopus doesn't like krill. You can try raw shrimp from the grocery store or fish market or else live hermit crabs, live shrimp or live fiddler crabs. Good luck!
