I'm afraid the one you've identified your animal with is one found in an aquarium and we don't know where it originated from either. It was found in a Brazilian aquarium and looks quite like a Caribbean species, but as Tropical Pacific species have also been found in Brazilan pet shops there is no way to be sure of its origin.
As you will see from the species list, there are species of Oxynoe in both the tropical Atlantic and the Pacific, and they are all quite similar in colour and shape. To identify your animal to a particular species, would not be easy.
