    Flamboyant cuttlefish advice please!

    Long story short a small flamboyant cuttlefish has come into my possession. I am hoping I'm ready for this though I'm not sure if I'd ever feel as if I'm ready until I just start working on the hands on side. I've researched a ton on them. (One of those moments of odd twist of luck) As well as...

    Hi I was supposed to get 2 cuttlefish but one was back ordered. I received the second one a week later but I am seeing some odd behavior towards the new one. I had 2 of them about a year ago that were fine together for almost a year but I put them in together. Here is a video of behavior. Is...

    Cool Cuttlefish at The Montery Bay Aquarium

    I was at the Monterey Bay Aquarium a few Years ago, I sadly didn't get to see any of the deep sea cephalopods they have had in the tentacles exhibit. However I was able to film both Sepia bandensis and Metasepia pfefferi feeding, on a saltwater livebearer and shrimp respectively. I also did get...

    Flamboyant Cuttlefish

    Sometimes I help out a friend of mine who works at a wholesaler when he gets shipments in, and last week he got in a flamboyant cuttlefish. The videos are kind of boring (he didn't eat the shrimp), but it is kind of cool to see it move. Unfortuantely when they came in the next morning he was...

So my question to you is: is there even a flam in the tank. I was disappointed because that was the main...

    Dear all, I would like to ask some rather detailed questions regarding flamboyants. Maybe those with more experience can contribute their observations/experiences with this wonderful species? 1) Does lower temperature lead to better egg viability? I read once on the internet that a diver...
