Hi,

I am interested in getting a cuttlefish.

Can you keep cuttlefish with a seahorse or are they only a species only tank?

a sea horse would be a quick snack for a cuttle fish. they definetly require a species only tank

There used to be a display at the Shedd, that had blue spot rhomboid stingrays and cuttles.

A seahorse would not be a very good tank mate

With all due respect, if you're even asking that question, you haven't done nearly enough homework to consider this animal. Some reading for you:

They are wonderful and amazing animals. They need A LOT of expert care to thrive. Good luck to you.
