      Did you get a chance to see them change color? Marvelous beasties.
    • Chlidonias
      do you know which species this is? It's very attractive.
    • Ituri
      It is beautiful. Unfortunately the species was not listed on the sign and nobody I asked knew.

      the name flamboyant cuttlefish popped out from the deeper recesses of my brain so I googled it and I think that might be the one (Metasepia pfefferi)

      I think that this is exactly right. This cuttlefish looks like the species kept at the California Academy of Sciences which is the flamboyant cuttlefish.

      A good name for this species :) - which I had never heard of previously.
