View Full Version : Squid Keeping

Hello I live in Maine. In Maine we have long-finned squid that grow up to 17 inches in length, and boreal or short-finned squid that are up to 9 inches in length.

I was wondering if anyone has ever kept one of these as a pet?

They would require extremely large cold water tanks.

You need a massive, massive tank for a squid. For one thing, they dart when startled. In a tank that's too small, they just go splat on the glass. There's a reason you don't even see them in public aquariums.
