If you could get a few S.bandensis they would do nicely in a 100g, problem is, they're not always easy to find and they're normally adults at the end of their lifespan. At the moment, Octopets has captive bred S.officinalis (common cuttles), however, when these are full grown a 100g would be a little cramped for these guys.

Oh and :welcome: to TONMO.com!
