ha ha not to worry my cuttle is the smaller species of cuttle Sepia bandensis, and the max size is 5 cm so I guess it should be able to live in a refugium?
and by the way will cuttle are full the will not eat even if the food is right infront of them right?

I have never kept cuttlefish (new house soon...hehe...bigger tanks...cuttles? oh yeah ) but the octos I have had sometimes would kill a prey item but not consume it when they are full...most of the time, they just ignore them.

nope it doesn't yet ha ha but I do have a question my cuttle isn't eating yet is it cos it is too full? It had already eaten two shrimp when it arrive and it is not a very big cuttle about 1.5-2 inches and by the way the max size for my cuttle is not 5cm srry bout that

I think the mantle size maximum is about 5cm but its bigger when you add on the rest of the body ;)

Cuttles do seem to eat more than octopuses, best bet is to add little and often and split up the feedings, so maybe try 1 shrimp am and 1 pm? then see... Once it settles in it wont be shy about letting you know its hungry!
