I was just wondering....
I know they live for lil over a year but I don't know how old he was when captured. He's about the size of a silver dollar with his tentacles rolled up and I've had him for about 3 months. How much longer you think he's got?

Just from what I have read, they are usually 3-4 mths old when captured and don't live any longer than 1-2 yrs at the very most. Adult size is around 10-12cm (4")
