Hi Everyone, I'm new to the board and have just received a new S. bendensis cuttle (~ 2 1/2-3" long) yesterday. My plan to drip acclimate the cuttle was cut short as it inked in its bag while I was floating it to adjust temp. and get the drip line set up. I knew that my salinity, measured by refractometer was the same in my tank as that of the store and also so was the pH. Since it inked in the bag after floating for ~15-20 minutes I decided to open it up and let it in. After a couple of hours I added a ghost shrimp which was eaten immediately and then another an hour later was also eaten immediately. The cuttle also looked good this morning and I fed it again. So after a long build up, here is my question: Is it correct to think, despite not properly acclimating by drip, that since it is eating, that it has settled in fairly well? I know from keeping a reef tank with a variety of fish that those newly introduced that start to eat is a good sign. Thanks for your help, I'm going to post some pics in a few days once the cuttle feels more secure moving around in the tank. Kevin.
