    A new video was contributed by shunt1 of the unfortunate demise of his cuttlefish, eaten by his puffer. It has been added to the video gallery (top listing):

    Thank you shunt1, and sorry about your loss here.

    The horror! The horror!

    At least the puffer had the decency to move offscreen for the actual munching and consuming. Nasty to see the debris raining down though, bleeurgh!

    Weep not, your cuttle is with Dagon now.

    :sad:

    ... ok, that gives me a whole new perspective on puffers, they're viscious killers, but I still love them. I feel so sorry for the cuttle. He was just being innocent!

    Yummy! Tetrodotoxin! Not enough and you won't catch a buzz, too much and you're zombified - a trifle more and you're one dead gourmand! Still, if I ever get the chance to try it while visiting Japan...

    A great resource to support the idea of species only tanks!

    I know this is resurrecting an old thread, but this kind of answers the first question I was going to ask.

    Everywhere I have read on the net has said species only, it was the same with my green spotted puffer, BUT, the all LFS I visited that said they could supply, did say they would be alright together if of a similar size. My GSP is only 2" and probably won't reach it's 5"-6" MAXIMUM adult size most stop somewhere in the region of 4" - 5", that said, I still won't be attempting to keep them together when my puffer reaches the marine stage of life.
    I totally agree, that poor little cuttlefish should not have been in with a porcupine puffer that can reach over 1.5 feet in length.

    If however there is an unfortunate incident, this will be my first port of call for continuing to research, and sourcing a captive bred sepia bandensis.

    A huge thank you to all involved in creating and maintaining this fantastic resource, I fear if I had not found this place then another little cuttle would have suffered a similar fate.

    I hope to be back again at some point in the future as these really are amazing little creatures

    Jay

    Most LFS don't really know much in regard to cephs, or reefs for that matter. :grin:

    I'm a big fan of the spiney puffers. My spiney box tries to eat my snoflake eel. Personally i woulda seen it commin'.
