    Very cool animals! Even compared to an octopus!

    I am not sure what kind he is but obviously hoping he is a bandensis.

    He has already eaten shrimp from a feeding stick and acclimatizing very well. Lives in a 92 corner bow.

    Sure here is one.

    He actually ate last night about an hour after he went into the tank too. so looks like he is a keeper! Any idea what species?

    Hey Rudy,

    Nice. Where are you located, did the store know where it came from, and do you have a bigger picture?

    I'm going to guess bandesis based on the shape ofthe light blotch on the back, but it could be anothoer species that is just caouflagingin on a typical manner.

    I am in Canada. I will try to get more info on where he came from.

    I also wanted to ask what kind of lighting I should/could use on him?

    Some mushroom corals would be nice to keep.

    Can you specify his size?

    A bigger close up image would be good.

    Cuttles are hard to id from pics, but a closer up/bigger pic would help.
    Also where in canada? Knowing might help me make a guess where they guy came from.

    For lighting, daylight pc or t5 or VHO would work well for both the cuttle and the mushrooms.
