    Lol, looks almost like it was taken out of the frozen seafood section at an inland shop. Except...my grandparents said Cuttlefish aren't that tasty to eat. :(

    Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh!, my snow cuttle inked last night, all over my yard! I awoke to white stuff everywhere. What do I do now? I don't think I can do a complete water (snow) change. I can't even see her anymore...

    in my opinion your grandparents are wrong, cuttlefish is the greatest food ever
    have you ever had snow cuttlefish... its pretty bland but it melts in your mouth
