    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...

    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...
