Hey everyone,
I live in Senlis, France (im french..!), and really hope to set up a tank for cuttlesfish. My only problem is....i have a small buget..
I was thinking, instead of using a tank, why not use a king of large bowl/basin ??? more like a small pool.?? (I think that this is used in research centers.....) is it not a problem if the animals only get light from the top??
Talkin about the animals.....does anyone know what SMALL species of cuttlefish are available? i already know about the S. bandensis and the Euprymna scolopes. I am looking for 2 animals in 30 gallon of water...
I really hope that you will find some time to answer my questions !!!
Thanks,
Robin

:welcome: Robin!!!
be sure to read Colin's article on keeping cuttles...it contains a wealth of information for you...Nancy has written some great ceph care articles that might help you with your tank decision too...all under "ceph care"...
