    That would probably good for 3-4. But by reef tank what do you mean? As in reef ready, or full blown reef? Some of the corals in a reef tank will sting and cause damage to the cuttles. Also, they will most likely eat all the fish, crabs (except hermits) and shrimp...

    Sps can be sharp though. That may pose a problem. I understand cuttlefish bodies are pretty fragile.
