My first common cuttlefish put up with temperatures over 80 degrees f. without apparent discomfort (originally hatching after being brought home in damp seaweed on a hot day). Have also kept them in an unheated integral garage through the winter - much longer lifespan of over a year.
High temps. may be detrimental to larger specimens because of reduction in oxygen dissolved in water?
Wonderful animals. :biggrin2:

Also think that higher water temps make them a bit more skittish and likely to ink
