Blue Dragon you live near where all the cool stuff lives! I am surprised that you don't have more available there- even if it was only on the menu. :wink:

I will be looking in a couple months too-I will be watching this thread. I figured I would have to get a Vulgaris octo because they are near where I live and available.

Good Luck!

i may seem to live where cuttles do but i'm still finding it hard to get one.Even the local fish shops don't have them.it seems i can't get a tank big enough to home sepia officinalis.whats more is that i plan to breed them so i'll need a realy big tank and there's just no space so i've decided that i only want sepia bandensis.

Thanks for your help so far.

I'm not sure...I thought they sold them, but I didn't see an Available page or anything. Maybe they just don't have any available right now...try e-mailing them.

Its not a them, its a he. And I believe that he does not have any right now and that he typically doesn't distribute to people he doesn't know.

www.stickycricket.com is the website of a member here. He has lots of excellent videos and a great article in the article section. He writes under the name of "Righty", so look for his posts for great cuttle information.

Since octopets went under I don't know of any commercially tank raised cuttles. Octopets had the big guys, not dwarfs. I found a few eggs from a LFS, but that is all I have seen anyone mention online -here anyway.

Good Luck!

I dont think its even worth attempting to get a cuttle from the States all the way back to Malaysia!!!
Do you live near the sea? Go down to a fishing dock with a photo and ask around.
There must be some local markets selling them? Or perhaps ask a fisherman to get you one.
The vast majority of cuttlefish are sourced from where you live - try to do some snooping, they must be somewhere around. :biggrin2:
