Yesterday, one of Baby A's babies hatched. It was my last egg (I hope!!!!). After unsuccessfully trying to catch any Tigger Pods, amphipods or even the small red shrimp larvae that were swarming around in my refugium, I decided to release the baby cuttle in the refugium (without the net breeder). My thought was that he would be better at tracking down prey than me :grin: . I also realized that I may never see the little guy again, or at least until he get bigger than a pencil eraser... Well tonight I decided to peak into the refugium and there he was, sitting on a piece of seaweed, looking bigger! Maybe I will be successful raising this baby :smile: .

Sounds like what I did with Bill. Let him go in the tank, and saw him in a couple weeks, fat and happy.
