It would seem that Australia's cuddlefish population may be threatened with extinction: pop. 200,000 late 90s to 13,000 now.

Here's an interesting mating ritual. Damn those cuttlefish males are resourceful.

It's a shame that population stats over the decades on these critters were not recorded because I somehow think that this serious population decline is due to industrial activities and climate change rather than a natural cyclic event.

The scientists are not really sure if their population is in a normal decline or not, they just don't have the historical population stats.

I would only do it if i had a tank big enough for it to really move freely
Most kept cuttles are in small spaces .its cruel .

Yes I have the same problem, and also since many of these fish in tropical waters are caught using horrific methods. sad2.gif
