Hello! I just got my first octopus on 5/11!

I know he was was packed with a newspaper from Singapore, so I believe he was sourced from South East Asia. He has very long arms as well (at least double the length of his mantle).

Any idea what exactly he may be? I'm also curious to figure out about how old he is, but I need to narrow down what he is, first.

Thanks for your help! IMG_20170515_200742.jpg IMG_20170515_200728.jpg IMG_20170515_200510.jpg IMG_20170515_200507.jpg

The arm pattern suggests something in the Abdopus family but the arms look a bit thicker than most of the aculeatus we see (some of @Neogonodactylus photos do suggest they can be thick though). Lovely animal.
