    Hello Everyone,

    I am collecting data on cuttlebones in order to provide better husbandry for cuttlefish... Tony was gracious enough to setup a database through TONMO that should not take very long to complete and is very user friendly. I am collecting data from anyone who is keeping cuttlefish (researchers, aquarists, hobbyists, etc.).

    If you have any questions about the data or filling out the survey you can use this thread or send a PM my way.

    I want to thank everyone in advance for the participation.

    You might want to include data on what food it was fed.

    I think that the food data and other data like that can be put into the additional notes section.

    I didn't have a chance to count the lamellae yet, I will try to do so sometime this week, as well as take some photos for you.

    I've "unstuck" this because I've disabled the application that powered this data source. Trying to minimize customizations to the forum to decrease complexity when upgrading, troubleshooting, etc. This feature isn't used much -- but glad it served the purpose - thanks!
