    Okay so my new 39g CAD pro series should be here any day now. I planned to eventually have SPS and clams in it along with zoanthids and some nice rics. It has a 9g sump and I will probably be adding a 5-10g fuge. There will also be chaeto in the center compartment of the sump. Would I be able to get a cuttle or 2 after a few months for this? I have done a decent amount of research on cuttles so I understand a good bit about them (not to say I still don't have questions I will need to ask).

    i dont see why not, just make sure to give it about 3 months to be fully cycled.

    My main concerns are their bio load and the lighting

    I don't seem much problem with the bio load, and no problem with the lighting. Fun!

    yea i think two would be ok in a 39g as long as your filtration can keep up with it.

    Do you guys think a sump with a skimmer and chaeto in middle compartment+a seperate 10g refugium will be able to handle 2 cuttles?
