    Overcollection of Flamboyants - Asian Pet Trade

    I am sure all cephalopod keepers have heard about the overcollection of Metasepia pfefferi for the Asian pet trade mentioned at one point or another. It is considered a very rare and prized species in the US and the UK with a hefty price tag. We all can agree that we rarely see Flamboyant...

    Flamboyant Cuttlefish

    Hello guys, I wonder whether you might have any idea where I could track down a flamboyant cuttlefish for our aquarium? I am based in Queensland, Australia. I'm also interested in getting hold of a tropical blue ring octopus found in Queensland waters, but I know these are incredibly hard to...

    Flamboyants at California Academy of Sciences

    Holy cow! Here is the text I wrote for a blog: Here is a crazy pic of a 'floater'. I think she is doing the weird thing with her arms to help keep her back wet, but I might be making that up.

    Flamboyant Cuttle

    I've been in the works of getting ready to raise some baby bandensis. I'm just waiting on eggs to become available. And now my LFS gets a Flamboyant Cuttlefish!!! He's had it for 2 weeks. It's eating well. Not sure how old it is, but I am so sorely tempted!!! Quick, someone talk me out of it!

    Flamboyant keeping/breeding

    First off, I am not looking to get flamed here, I am well aware of how hard flamboyants are to keep, and their situation in the wild (one of the reasons I am looking into breeding). What I'm looking to do is get peoples 2 cents, and gather information that experienced ceph keepers may have...

    New Flamboyant (tullbergi)

    I forgot I had a standing order with a wholesaler for these guys, and one showed up the other day. The shipment was delayed and the water temp when it arrived was 60 F. Cold. I thought everything was dead - the cuttle and 2 octos (prolly aculeatus) looked really bad. I did a medium slow...
