These are pictures of Ringo. He was sent to me from California and was listed as a Indo-Pacific octopus. He likes to dance around the tank at night and during the day. He loves his two chromis tank buddies (bought for food, but hasn't happened yet). The pictures are the best that I could get. I tried to attach the video I have, but it would not work. If anyone needs anything else, let me know.

From the coloration, spikey head, arm to mantle ratio and the recent popularity of importation from Indonesia, my best guess from the first pics is on of Chrissy's a. aculeatus.

I agree.I am starting to think that Achilles was an aculeatus as well(even though I was told he came from the Caribbean).
