    My juvenile bandensis has very very bulgy eyes...is this a warning sign?

    Picture?

    I don't mean to startle you, but when I found dead ones, their eyes were bulged, and the pupils seemed very distinct. Usually you have to look closely, but you can see them clearly when they are dead. They look blank. A picture will help.

    Ai that startled me quite a bit! He;s definitely not dead, though. Just sulking. I figure it's probably just like that when he "pulls" his tentacles downward so his eyes seem to bulge...

    As long as he is eating, and swimming normally I wouldn't worry too much.

    Alright :D Thanks

    He seems really bored and unstimulated. I think I need to start searching around for a similar sized cuttlefish to keep him company.
