    They are harder to care for but not impossible

    it says that they were captive bred..so i don't think it's THAT bad..i don't think it should be on ebay though...they definitely make it sound like its easy

    A lot of hobbiests are able to keep cuttlefish successfully.

    I had been thinking of one of these for a species 55 tank.

    Thanks for the link. Was looking for good resources.

    Don't go there. I started a thread about that seller on tonmo-

    What's up with this? - TONMO.com Forums

    I got my cuttles from here; I was really happy w/ them- Sepia bandensis

    Like Gresham said, if you are at all interested in cephs, JOIN TONMO ( TONMO.com: The Octopus News Magazine Online ).

    I have not had any experience dealing w/ Welcome to Daisy Hill Cuttle Farm! , but have heard only good things. Aquarium Fish: Tropical Freshwater Fish and Saltwater Fish for Home Aquariums sometimes has semi-grown ones in. I talked to a guy who bought some from RARE !!! LIVE CUTTLEFISH !!!! saltwater RARE !!! - eBay (item 270421519746 end time Jul-12-09 20:31:46 PDT) and he said everything went okay. But there are overpriced and a little shady. I still have yet to find much info (at all) on a so called "sepia Robertsii."

    By the way- if you do go cuttle (which I highly recomend for dedicated and well researched aquarists), get more than one so you can help contribute to the captive bred population.

    If you have any Q's on sepia bandensis and their care, feel free to PM me, say it on this thread or something like that. But even better just do research and join tonmo. All information is good information (when it comes to aquariums).

    Daniel got his first clutch from Rich IIRC. Look over his site, he mentions Richard Ross a few times I'm sure :)

    Rich doesn't ship them anymore, Daniel does that now ;) It's just one big family.
