    Has anyone noticed that fishsupply.com has started selling cuttlefish???? Is this really an option for us in the U.S. to have cuttles? This is really exciting :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

    I noticed also that when I went to order my bimac on octopets.com they had started selling them too! Good news for all of you cuttle fans it seems :)

    Yep, it was a long time coming....

    Just be aware that it is Sepia officinalis that is being sold and that they are going to get BIG and need a cooler for most places :)

    well good luck with that :?

    i like to try the old "well hey ther really really ridiculouslygood lookin'" and then something like...

    "i've been trying to think of the best way to add thousands in value to the house....and then it came to me...a CEPHALOPOD ROOM. In the entrance we could have the chambered nautilus followed by rows of black squid cylinders along the walls and a centrepiece containing a colony of cuttles...oh yeah and octos in the back corner" lol

    well it might work??? :lol:

    good luck

    My bet is that the octos and cuttles on fishsupply.com are from octopets, so you should buy directly from octopets to reduce stress.

    I cant even begin to imagine how horrible the red tape would be... maybe worth looking into but i think local species would be a better safer bet
