Who Loves Cuttles?

Post by CuttleLover on October 31st 2009, 10:46 pm

I don't have a cuttle and probably never will as they are very hard to keep in captivity and very rare to buy.

However, they are facinating! There was a show on them on PBS a month or two ago and I was hooked. (Pardon the expression!) http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/camo/ There's plenty online, but here is wiki's page on them: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cuttlefish

I went through a cuttle phase Razz. I joined the TONMO forum but never posted because as soon as i learned their life span i lost interest... Okay. It would be great to breed them though. Heres another article. http://www.tonmo.com/articles/basiccuttlefish.php

Here's a video. I'm not sure if there are cuttlefish in their but i'm pretty sure there is one. BTW this is in the Australian temperate reefs.

The PBS special said they live 2 years in the wild, but I guess only 6 months in captivity.

Sorry- I might have. But then I didn't see it....?

No I don't know what kind it is. I was so caught up in taking pictures. There were two of them- same kind.

Yes! They had those in the NOVA episode. They are actually poisonous. They tested one that was about to die because of its colors and sure enough- poisonous! They are small, too. They kind of walk instead of swim along.

So fascinating. I love cuttlefish again.

Did anybody watch the video above? I can't remember if it was a cuttlefish or and actual fish that was in it.

I did try a baby trop cuttle a year ago but lost it after a few months. Fed it on live mysis but couldn't adapt it to frozen.

Would you have any tips on feeding?

Just feed it live foods. Some animals just wont take frozen. I think that's why they are labeled as difficult cephalopods to raise. How big was the cuttle?
