He/She is only about 6-7 inches long. Very inquisitive. I love the coloration. I had the LFS order it and they were keeping it in one of those plastic bug keeper bins in the tank where they keep their starfish, tube worms, snails, shrimp, etc. Evidently last night it broke out of the bin and feasted. The store owner thinks he lost about $500 worth of stock.

That's an awesome story. I wish they had it on video. My lfs had an octopus do the exact same thing. It was in the critter box too. And 6-7" is huge!

Yeah and he wasn't even considered to be an extra large or jumbo.

Thanks. I have him right now in my CAD tank which has very thick glass. I am going to make a custom tank for him though. Hope to be starting it soon.
