I saw a clip on facebook that was a mix of different ocean species (no IDs given), but this little animal stood out. The video showed what appears to be a small cuttlefish snatching prey, but the cuttlefish looks adhered to substrate (dead coral maybe?) like a remora. I took a screen shot to post here. Does anyone have any ideas what this species might be?

Here is a 2011 article by @Danna that talks about this unique squid species (not cuttlefish) that makes its own "glue"
