Cuttle Tank ?'s

Aug 1, 2007
Detailed Description
Nano-reef tank

This new addition to our aquarium systems is specifically designed for the professional reef keeper. It is built with an internal center “reef ready” overflow box, giving these tanks two main goals: combining the nano reef display with the compatibility of using all external filtration systems. The Professional package complete is designed to be a complete Nano-reef system yet modeled as a full custom-made aquarium set-up with all the components installed in the cabinet for a true professional reef system. This comes included with our Signature series equipment package with our latest in HQI lighting design, High volume 100G True Pin-wheel high-volume protein skimmers, UV sterilizer, cooling fan, Mag-Drive 500GPH pump and all of the Cadlights Signature equipment that you are accustomed to seeing. It is the perfect package for the master DIYers and advanced reef hobbyists who want the most out of their reef-keeping experience.

Each one of these packages are installed here with pre-cut tubing, fittings, standpipes and all plumbing work prior to shipping.
The new 39 gallon tank now has a larger footprint, making more space for filtration and the display area. This new tank has more customized high end features, much like the previous model. Our goal was continuing to streamline our seamless design, while enhancing other features. The tank offers our Signature furniture style, mitered edges and extra thick glass, measuring 8mm thickness, all of which are above industry standards.

I originally posted this in cuttle care but got no response. is this a good tank to hatch and raise a few sepia bandensis. How many could i keep. I want to have at least 3 so i can ensure i have a mal and female. Any thoughts.
More to let you know people are reading it than because you should listen to me, it sounds like a pretty good find. I'd like to hear Thales, Paradox, Cuttlegirl, and the others who have raised bandensis to adulthood chime in... I know Cuttlegirl moved her 3 out of the 29 (into a 55?) because they were too cramped, so I'm not sure if this will be big enough, and I don't know enough about the filtration description to have an opinion, although the ability to add external filtration to the system looks good at first glance... it sounds like they're a good combination of "integrated package" without too much "no user modification possible" problems.

You have to let it float on the water. If you put it on the basking area, they will drag it onto the water anyway!
However , speaking from experience here is some advice. When you are feeding them, especially cuttle bone and such stuff you should feed them in a separate tank. All the food in the water will make the water look and smell really bad and you will have to clean up more regularly! I use a plastic box that was used to carry cherries, fill it up with a few cm of water and put them in there to eat!

I think you would be fine with three in there, 2 male 1 female, at least until the last couple months of their lives. The foot print is a little shallow.
