Hey,
I'm looking to set up a tank to keep a few S. bandensis and am unsure if the tank I currently have would be acceptable, It is a 30 gallon "breeder" measuring 36''x18''x12''. I was reading through the care sheets on S. bandenss and it had mentioned tall tanks are preferable, But is it completely necessary?

I was also curious what the general consensus is on keeping two, perhaps three specimens in a aquarium this size?​

I've not successfully kept cuttles but know that CuttleGirl mentions that a 55 is the smallest she would go for 3. A thirty has been noted as satisfactory for a single animal. Aside from water quality, the tank size seems to impact fighting, particularly between males.

So your saying its just physical volume were worried about, rather than the footprint?
So I think I'd purchase a 65 gallon with the same 36''x18'' footprint, rather than using the breeder tank.
