Bobtail Squids?


O. vulgaris
Aug 1, 2007
I saw a bobtail squid at a local pet store. Even though there not cuttlefish I assume that they have similar husbandry requirements. I was hoping to set up a specific tank for them. If anyone have any prior experience or information it will be greatly appreciated. I've done a little reaserch and was planning to have a deep sand bed with some seagrass. Is this an appropriate setup. Do they need specific requirements eg. feeding/tank size/lighting,diurnal/nondiurnal, or anything not covered here. Can I keep more than one in the same tank?

Thank you
