    There are some excellent care articles in the, guess..the articles section! Here is a link to one on cuttlekeeping. Read that one and then ask any questions you might have.

    I would say about the same at octos. I would recommend S. Bandensis for your 30 gallon. I would try both the Alemeda link and Aquatropics. Both have contact information listed in the Cuttle Availability thread.

    Hi am just new to the forum and have a question.I live in aus and am just wondering about these little guy and this looks like a great way to start.I have kept all types of fish for years including a reef tank for quite a while.I am in the process of setting up for a cuttle but i dont know what species it is.It is at my local fish shop here in Australia and is really tiny could easily fit on my thumb nail.very cute.I was told that it has come from the great barrier reef area but no other details were given.Just wondering whether you know or are there multiple species in this area.Any info will help. cheers.:smile:
