Hi everyone, this week i found some deserted baby reef squid less than an inch long. They had gotten washed up in a puddle at New Port Cove Marina and where going to die if i did nothing so I let 3/4 of them go and have now 6 of them in a 30 gallon tank I'm selling 3 of them any one want some? They seem very healthy and eat live brine every day.

Hey John. Where do you live. I live just north of Tampa. Maybe I can come to you and get one of these and maybe help you with your octopus and system. Thank you for thinking of me with these squid. I would need to do some research on what they need and tank size. I have no idea how well these will ship.

Also just for a bit of info you will want to get them eating something else besides brine. Brine shrimp has very little food value. Kind of like us eating cotton candy. I would be trying frozen mysis. If you get them eating mysis I think you have a good chance of them making it. Then again I know nothing about these like what species and what they need. Can you tell me how big they are? I have a tank ready LOL

just did a little reading about these. Looks like they should be kept in a group so you might want to sell the 3 to just one person. I am up for it but I am not trying to take them away from any one else.

I would like all 3 depending on price (plus shipping to CA). I teach marine studies here (Valencia High School) and mollusca is our next unit. Let me know if they are still available.
