    the photos are difficult to get for now cos my cuttlle is still new and usually would hide in places where it is difficult to get it's photo so maybe it would start coming out more often after a few days then I would be able to get a photo of it. :D

    sure! today my cuttle found a hiding place and dug a hole and sat there waiting for its food to come by sometimes it really gets lazy or it would sometimes bust into craziness and go all over the tank and it likes playing hide and seek, would change its position when you find him sometimes :D [/b]

    today is a very sad and very angry day :( :x , as you all may have guessed my cuttle just died out of a sudden!!! no idea why??? it just died it was doing well even from the start I got it but just died this morning I woke up, I have checked it there was no wounds on it or any parasites that might have be on it nothing was damage but it is just dead really sad and angry trying to find the reason for its death... maybe would try another one next time.

    Very sorry that your cuttle died. :( It was doing so well, too. They're difficult pets to keep and it's sad to lose one.

    Did you also check the water parameters?

    hi panzz

    sorry that you had such sad news

    They do seem to be really tricky to aclimatise and keep well in captivity. It was probably nothing you did wrong, but worth checking water quality all the same
