You can't say that octos or cuttles are better. They're both intelligent and interesting to keep.

Cuttles (S. officinalis) are more difficult to keep than bimacs because they require such a large tank. We also have less experience keeping them.

Well cuttles ink alot more than octos but once it's settled down its not too much of a problem. Cuttles also do not seem to ship as well as octos. Like Nancy said both of them are very interesting creatures so its really more of a personal preference ( and tank space).
