Despite popular information I have known people to dead-feed Octopus bimaculatus with defrosted foods, and today I read the Sydney aquarium do this for their cuttlefishes. How common is the practice, w which species etc. Then on another note the Baesch atlases say that some cuttlefish have been maintained in mixed exhibits with peaceful fishes, that were of no interest to the mollusc. Though this sounds intuitively accurate, there was no further information provided. Can anyone provide details.
