Hi, I know this qustion might be rather hard to answer because it is largely personal opinion.
My qustion is which would be a better for a first ceph; a
S. bandensis or one of the smaller octos and which would be more personable? :hmm:Any help would be welcome.

I think most dwarf's are pretty shy, don't know about cuttles but aculeatus and hummelincki are relatively small octo's and are personable.

IMO cuttles are very curious and playful. Octos tend to be more expensive to feed, and buy. Cuttles are relatively cheap and won't escape from the tank. I'm very fond of my chameleon's eating habits, and they are pretty much the same along the lines of shooting out arms/tongue, IMO it is very fun to watch. Cuttles are also diurnal (awake during day) most dwarf octos are nocturnal,
