The following video from shunt1 shows the unfortunate demise of a cuttlefish at the hands of a puffer fish. Per shunt1, The Cuttle was large enough that I did not think that it would be a problem for these two to live with each other. To my horror, this is what I captured on video. That Puffer was almost served for dinner tonight! -- Steve (shunt1)

TONMO.com member joel_ang has submitted this great video of his cuttlefish stalking and easily conquering a not-too-alert little fish. True to being a cephalopod, notice how the cuttle flashes a pattern as it snatches its meal (see snapshot below).
