ID on this octo?

Im wondering if this is an O. mercatoris or an O. Joubini? Im pretty sure it is a dwarf...it is very small maybe the size of a half dollar.

Do you know where it was caught?

Judging by the proportion of its eyes vs. it's mantle I would agree that it's definitely a dwarf. Mercatoris' seem to be much more common than joubini. Either way, same needs apply.

Have fun with it.
