Main difference is size and temp requirements.

Bandensis get 5-6"
Offinialis get 1.5" or so

Bandensis can be kept at temps around 72-78
Officinalis ideally should be kept 70 or lower

Officinalis get 1.5 feet

just to make sure no one is confused.

i know size is the main thing but as far as identifying markings go? When looking at a pic its hard to tell size. I know it says how large it is on liveaquaria but if it were a juvi officianlis it could be small too..

Whenever they have cephs, they go quick. The cuttle in question looked very much like a bandensis for 150 bucks. The usually have the officinalis link, and I am going to ask Kevin about it when I see him soon. Anyone interested should check the cuttle availability thread! :biggrin2:
