    Do dwarf cuttlefish females lay eggs with other female's eggs? I came across a LOT of eggs tonight which have been laid over the past maybe 3 days. I'm not sure if its possible for 1 female to produce that many eggs in such a short time. It looks more like 2 females are laying eggs in the same area. I noticed 2 cuttles off to the side of the rock getting very aggitated at me for messing with the rock.

    Yep! It is very common for cuttlefish to lay eggs together.
