  1. Non Coral Dominated Systems
    Time for my blue-moon post! Ya know, cause I hardly post here. Shame, really... Anyway I figured I'd bring up a thread about one of the most curious group of marine animals, the Cephalopods. I know that some people do keep Octopi as pets, usually sold as Assorted Octopus. I also know that they...
  2. Non Coral Dominated Systems
    In general I am curious if any of you have kept any of the three mentioned in the title. I've seen Octopus and cuttlefish kept as pets, but never squid. Has anyone ever kept squid? is it possible? But im mostly interested in Octopus and Cuttlefish. Both seem interesting and I just wanna know...

    Hi there, So the story: I came home yesterday to find one of my cuttlefish stuck in the tank anyways I set him free and as he was freed i dropped the rock too quick and scared the cuttlefish and he inked himself well.. to death. So the problem I have now is that I have a octopus in the same...
  4. Non Coral Dominated Systems
    Hi, I don't know if I have ever posted on here before but I also come here for reference from older threads, so why not ask my questions here to not only help myself but everyone else who checks here. So I have a 75 reef now for about 2 years which is doing fine. I want another fish tank that...

    I have been searching the internet for things that are super cool to keep inside fish tank and i have stumbled upon Dwarf Cuttle Fish (Sepia bandensis). I read that whole article on http://www.tonmo.com/cephcare/cuttlefish.php which states that they are the same difficulty as a reef tank and i...

    i came across a site that sells cuttlefish eggs, 20 bucks for 3 of them. has anybody had any experience with hatching and raising these?

    would a 34g red sea be large enough to house just 2 cuttlefish bandesis and nothing else? i read posts on tonmo where a guy had 2 cuttles in a 20g who happily lived out their full live span and even mated in the tank. I will order probably 4 eggs in case on dies. if all live, i will c how they...

    the cuttles will be bought as eggs. from birth to around 1.5-2 months i will feed them live mysids. after a month or so start putting some frozen brine or mysids in their diet. from around 2-3 months if they are not already readily eating frozen i will start 2use larger shrimp such as shore...

    so to start my cuttle tank i decided to raise them from birth so i dont get already mature specimens with only weeks left. the place i would like to order from is ocean pro aquatics. the only problem is that they are the only place with cuttle eggs and their shipping is outrageously high! is it...

    So after months of research Im pretty sure Im going to attempt to a bandesis cuttle tank. I found a place (Ocean Pro Aquatics) that sells cuttle eggs. The tank is going to be around 50g. Since these guys dont grow more than 3-4 inches i am probably goin 2 order 4 eggs(usually some dont hatch...

    Hey. So What do you guys think would be better to keep in a 40g long tank? Either a bimac octo or 2 cuttlefish bandesis? I would order them babies so they could still grow. And yes, I know they have short lifespans and are hard 2 keep but I would still love to have one and take care of it. Also...
  12. General Reef Discussion
    At first, I wanted an octopus but didnt feel like waking up to have all the fish in my other tanks eaten or an octo in my bed:eek: So I found these guys and found that they would be slightly easier since I dont need to escapeproof my tank. But first, a few qsts. 1)How big do these guys get...

    I saw this video on Yahoo. I didn't realize that anyone actually kept them in tanks. I assume that they eat any fish that swim by. http://cosmos.bcst.yahoo.com/up/player/popup/?cl=12914423
