    I have an 100l aquarium with an 8cm Sepia Officinalis in it.The aquarium's lighting is a 25watt fuorescent bulb.Is it too much,adequate or inadequate for the cuttlefish.I also have noticed that it stays in the left corner of the aquarium(where there is a skimmer),without searching the rest of the tank for food.Yesterday,I fed it with two live crabs,but it ate them when I moved them near it.Could anyone help me?

    Do you have a pic of the tank you could post? It sounds like the cuttle doesn't feel all of too secure moving about the tank, and may need some more cover...
