curious. two of the pics look like Sepia apama to me, which would clearly be too big for 3 in a 55gal, but the one of an animal feeding looks smaller.

The picture of the one feeding is right on tonmo and another one was clearly taken in the ocean. I highly doubt those were taken by the seller.

I am not sure I trust the seller. There is one feedback (the rest are purchases) from a customer and no definitive info about the cuttle purchase. They do take Paypal which is helpful if it is a fraud (I won't buy anything on eBay that does not take Paypal) and doesn't expose credit card info but I would want more info on his "store" before making an offer ...

I KNEW I HAD SEEN THAT PICTURE SOMEWHERE:

The hand feeding picture is from Colin's article!

:heee::banghead: Yeah, he/she says they have kept Nautilus before...
She is also listing a "Tank-bred" Garabaldi for sale. These fish are protected (and not to be collected) per Department of Fish and Game.

Update: The seller says that the Garabaldi comes from a wholesaler in California. She knows that they cannot be collected in California - she says they are sometimes collected from Mexico.

Here is the link for reporting selling a live animal (cuttlefish) that is NOT a fish... :heee:
