Do you only have one? I've heard they are more active with other cuttles in the tank, but I have no personal experience with this.

i have 6.

Thales, do you think the presense of a fish in there could be scaring them? its a fairy wrasse that hid in the sand when i caught all my other fish, been trying to catch him for some time but having no luck. He doesnt even notice them.

I managed to catch him this weekend using a small hook and line.

Thales. All cuttles are approx 2".

Is it normal as they are (i would imagine) still juve to remain hidden during daylight hours?

I have started to try and feed them ONLY during the day.

What does this tentacle position mean? My cuttle keeps doing it as well...

I think cuttles are more nervous with fish around. My mantis shrimp display vast behavioral differences in the presence of fish (hiding all day) compared to when there aren't any fish (out all the time, exploring, hunting more aggressively, eating kills in the open instead of dragging them back to their burrows)
