    hi everyone,
    people who have read my post under journal and photos would know that I recently got a new cuttle and has been feeding already. but today after it has eaten for bout 15-30 mins or so it started swimming all over the tank almost non stop, I am worried that it may get too tired but doing this and idea why is my cuttle doing this??? Thanks! :D

    I've seen this in alot of my cuttles where they become hyperactive for some time, it doesn't seem to have any ill effects at all, excersise perhaps?

    i suppose it could be exercize! i hadnt thought of that

    unless... there wasnt a quick light change or anything - is it 'scared' swimming or 'curious' swimming... lol i never thought i would investigate different swimming moods of cephs!!!

    hmm ok thanks I think it is exercising cos I don think it got frightened cos the light was already on for some time and it would eat too if I try feeding it.
