So, I'm the ceph expert now, apparently...in an aquarium. Also, argonauts.

So apparently, one of the staff members at the aquarium I work at regularly goes out fishing and sometimes trawling to look for new specimens. He showed me this funny shell and said "I wonder what kind of snail uses this kind of shell, it looks pretty thin."
I took a look and was suprised, it was an argonaut shell. I've asked about it and apparently, he had a whole bunch of them from the same trawl (he said they probably traveled in schools (groups?) A few of them were kept at the aquarium for several days before they died.
So me and the rest of the guys were wondering, how long do they generally live? Do they require any special needs like a squid does (i.e circular tank, dim lights, tank should reach a particular size/height...etc.)
