I know you cant keep cuttlefish and octopus with other species, but is it possible to keep them together? As in doing a tank with both a cuttlefish AND a octopus? I am doubting this is possible as I write this, but figured it would be worth a shot to get a defenitive answer. Any articles on this subject?

Unfortunately no. Cephalopods like to eat other cephs. Checkout this video.

That is such a great video and I always cringe when it gets posted since I know what happens. I resisted pushing the go button THIS time. :roll:

Try to remind me that this and the video with the snowflake eel need to be put as entries in our tankmates forum when it gets established :wink:
