About two weeks ago I set up a 50 gallon saltwater aquarium. Now I have 5 damsels, 4 mollies acclimated to saltwater ( :yinyang: mind controls breath, molly, and breath controls body :yinyang: ), and a measly 6 or 7 lbs of live rock (my wallet hurts). The reason I did all this was for the cuttlefish (sepia officinalis or perhaps the pharoah for temperature reasons) I plan to own sometime... perhaps around Christmas?
So thats why I'm here. Hello tonmo.com!

Hi and :welcome: to TONMO.com
You have definitely come to the right place.

Well, getting a cuttle will be hard if you live in the U.S.A as there are no cuttle species from around there. The only way some LFS get it is by importing them from Indonesia.

The most commonly imported species is the S.bandensis( I currently have a baby one) which sadly, is not a good traveller and most of them perish along the way.

And also, bandensis' usually come as a 3-4 inch specimen meaning its an adult and that it only has a short while more to live.
