Hi, my name is Emilee and I've been a tonmo member for a while, I just never got around to introducing myself. Last winter I had the opportunity to go sailing in the pacific and investigate different morphisms of Ommastrephidae squid, and made it down to the Cephalopod International Advisory Council Symposium in Hobart, Tasmania in Feb 2006. Right now I'm still working on getting my bachelors in biology from the U of Alaska Anchorage, where we have a young cuttlefish, Garry, sent to us by the National Resource Center for Cephalopods. He's doing great and eating well. Here's a link to a video of what happened when we mistakenly added a blenny to his environment...

Wow, another CIACer... if we're not careful, we might start becoming respectable on accounts of all the :grad: around here...

Not saying that we're not respectable now tony... :smile:

:welcome: What kind of cuttlefish is that? Did you remove the blenny? Poor little blenny... You might want to consider removing the damsel (Dory). They can be aggressive and territorial. Even if you aren't having any problems now, you could in the future.

Glad you decided to introduce yourself!

:welcome: From me also! Sailing...That sounds like an awesome experience! And your video, the blenny looked like some kind of jawfish? Your cuttle sure had "high hopes" there. Did he end up getting him?
