Atlantic Pygmy Octopus

Does anyone have experience with Octopus joubini, the Atlantic Pygmy Octopus? I might set up a tank for one in the future, and I was just wondering if anyone has ever kept one before.

"I glue animals to rocks"

Current Tank Info: 36 gallon reef, 65 gallon Caribbean Biotope macroalgae and seagrass tank

I kept one in a 30 tall species tank. They're nocturnal and small. Only saw it a handful of times with a redlight. Ordered it from one of the small Caribbean vendors- can't remember which one though.

Don't do the pygmy they are reclusive and mean in comparison to other species. Caribbean reef octopus is fairly common and better choice I think, as far as temperament and colors go.
