    Went to the LFS yesterday, and much to my surprise there actually were eggs available! I haven't seen them here in at least 5 years. Scrambled to find some glass that was suitable, and today off to get some dragon's breath macro and a healthy portion of pods. Super excited.

    After 4 cups of copepod-rich water, and the macro. Iphone pic, if they hatch nicely I will have to bust out the camera and tripod :>

    Must be the season. I am considering doing the same since I found two US sources. Holding out for a final decision but working on the big tank to get the water quality up from it languishing for a couple of years (nitrates are high but bacteria in good shape).

    First one working its way out, hopefully not a preemie.

    My cuttlefish laid a series of eggs, and she preferentially laid on top of egg clutches already attached, so you could have different ages in your clutch, so might just have been laid earlier than other eggs.
