The Dwarf Cuttlefish's body is coloured light brown, or greenish yellow, with white spots on the head and short white bars. The fins, of pale colour, have rows of small fluorescent blue spots. Dwarf Cuttlefish tend to  "walk", rather than swims, using its arms and the flaps of the mantle.

The Dwarf Cuttlefish lives in shallow coastal waters of the Philippines and Indonesia. It is common in coral reef and sandy coast habitats, feeding on crustaceans at night.

It reaches 7 cm in length with females growing slightly larger.

This is an interesting, yet difficult to maintain Invertebrate as they consumes large amounts of live foods, thus requiring a good quality skimmer and filtration. These are best kept singularly or in small numbers unless kept in a very large aquarium, as they will fight each other in small quarters. Providing plenty of caves for hiding during daylight hours and plenty of live food is best.

Cuttlefish are a Coral Safe Invertebrate, however they will eat any small Fish or Crustacean in their aquarium.
