Metasepia pfefferi is probably the coolest thing ever. Just saw a post from aquarium of the pacific showing a vid of the ones they have.:lol:

Oh yeah I love cuttlefish. Very intelligent and fascinating creatures to watch, there is a species of dwarf cuttlefish that are captive bread for the aquarium industry. They have all the same traits, chromatophores on their skin, ambush hunting tactics..very cool. I guess the dwarf cuttlefish only live about a year or two but they breed frequently.

Watched a documentary on them yesterday. Apparently they are incrediy intelligent. Too bad they only live for a couple years otherwise I would want to keep some.
