Cycled my tank with fish for 6 months, and just ordered a cuttlefish. I have my salinity at 1.026, is this correct for cuttlefish? I've raised Octos for a few years and always kept my salinity high for them, just wondering if this is correct for Cuttlefish.

CHEERS!

I think Octopets sells S. officianalis. I'm not yet a cuttle keeper but I think they grow to somewhere around 18"?

I'd think it was much more awesome if I had a couple grand for a monster tank lying around! I'm really interested in getting some bandensis if the recent US supply is still around for a couple years, but bimacs are still my near future.

I really liking the idea of a BIG cuttlefish! After raising four bimacs and one Hapalochlaena lunulata (Which was QUITE scarey!) it will be nice to have something with some size to it.
As for the couple grand laying around to sponsor a bigger tank....Guess I should get back to work! I love home office!
