    I am a 12 year old, and wanted to know: is keeping dwarf cuttles at school viable? My teacher says its fine, and I can move the tank home over summer vacation. The tank is a 29 gallon with no sump. I can come and feed once every weekend/ extended weekend. I wanted to order cuttle babies from NY aquatics, and can feed the babies mysid shrimp, which I can keep in a 10 gallon at home.
    Is it all right?:bugout:

    I think we need more information to be of real assistance here. But based on the information you provided I would say no. This doesnt sound like a good idea to me. From my personal experience baby cuttlefish need food offered often (multiple times a day). Now I havent had as much experience as others so I would wait for them to chime in before making a decision but I think you would need to be more committed ie coming in everyday twice a day to feed and care for them.
