Hey there! I've been interested in Cephalopods and Cuttles in particular for many years, but the Midwest is a vast wasteland of knowledge or availability regarding anything more challenging than a goldfish, apparently.

I just found this site today on my bi-annual search for Cuttles, info and availability. It's WONDERFUL to find a group of enthusiasts, and hopefully one day (with your help) I will be able to gather the equipment, resources and know how to finally achieve my life's dream of raising some cuttles.

Any info regarding readily available, hardy, or non-disappearing species would be tremendously appreciated, as well as info on properly keeping, raising and breeding them.

I am not a recent, short-lived enthusiast, but I also refuse to enter into this lightly. Materials that accurately give info on keeping these guys would be greatly appreciated as well, but resources (at least in the past) have seemed impossible to find.

At any rate; sorry for the long post, and THANK YOU for just being here. I will read up on all I can and try not to post too much until I can contribute something positive to the conversation.

Now, I'm off to enjoy your stories, pictures and videos. :biggrin2:

You've come to the right place. Welcome Michael.

If you search through the Ceph Care articles you'll find a lot of the valuable information you need to get started. There are tons of threads in forums from previous and current Cuttle keepers to fill you in on what you can expect.

:welcome: Michael, This is the place for you. And don't worry about posting if you don't have anything to contribute. You might say something that could lead to a long, interesting discussion about some obscure point. It happens all the time.
