If you add them to your wish list they email you when they get them back in stock. This is how I got Oscar and he's the 2-spot caribbean or at least we think he is. I was very pleased on the way they package also.

Yeah, I did that too--lol twice... hmmm just waiting

sorry to go off the trail of this thread, but I should finally be getting cuttles in about 4 months and am looking for food, would salt water acclimated mollies provide a good source of food for cuttlefish, as a staple?

Cuttles really prefer shrimp or crabs as a prey item. I think that while they will probably eat the mollies, since their diet in the wild is primarily crustaceans (shrimp, crabs and lobster) that is what you should feed them in captivity.

And don't forget octopus. I still have problems with that video you posted :hmm:. I am warming back up to cuttles but I would have been soooo upset if I had been playing with an octo and something came up and ate it because I had the octos attention. In all likelyhood the cuttle would have gotten it anyway but still ...
