Hi,

one of my cuttle has a hole on it's back, you can see on the photo. What you think, is it possible, that the wound would heal or is he going to die?

Is there anything else in with the cuttle (fish, other cuttles)? If you keep the water pristine and the cuttlefish keeps eating, you have a chance. Good luck.

Hi,

he is only together with other cuttles. The problem was that he getting squeeze under the pump and rob there his back. I've solved that problem with some sand so he can't get under the pump.

He eats good and the white circle is much shorter now, but you can see the injury. I hope he will do it.

excuse my english please :wink:

its alive, all you can see now is a black tip on its back. Eating an behavior is normal like before, so i think it will make it.

My first died cuttle came into the intake of a powerhead as it was only two weeks old. It has larger injuries and i could see its lime thing. It eats an died after two dayes... :frown:
The second died of unknown reasons, so 8 cuttles becomes 6... Hope they will do it.
