Sorry to hear, I quite liked him from the pics you posted, balancing that little sandbank on his back...

:goodbye: Zim

Sorry to hear about your loss, but at least Zim had fun during his life.

RIP Zim :cuttle: :angel:

Sorry about Zim passing away. It does sound like old age. He was a fine cuttlefish and we all enjoyed hearing about him and looking at the pics.

Thanks for the kind words
had him I think 11 months?
so if i got him at 8 weeks that make him 13 months old.
he was not the longest lived cuttle but i think he made a good run of it.

Where I live, female cuttles live only a year or so in the wild, until right after spawning basically, with only the males reaching ages of two to three years (according to the locals)

13 months sounds like a great deal for Zim!
