Been a long time since I have had any...but last time I was diving I had three nice gulf dwarfs emerge from the rock as I was unloading it. I am pretty sure they are octopus mercatoris, although they are larger than I am used to usually.

I have them in the system, and am feeding them some small crabs and hermits.

This last year have had a lot of folks ask for them ....so am putting this out before they go to the University of Berkeley.
