Hi all,

I'm opening this thread as a place to find information on where cuttles are currently offered for sale.

Please post only sites and LFSs that you've verified - in other words, you need check to make sure any offering on the web that you post here is for real.

If you have eggs or young cuttles and intend to offer them for sale later, go ahead and list them in advance.

captive bred bandensis eggs.

Ok,

Here's the deal... I now have 36 Sepia bandensis eggs. :goofysca: I cannot keep 36 cuttles... so I am offering some of them to Tonmo community members. I have seen inside the first batch of eggs and I can see the embryos, so at least some of these eggs are viable. About 15 of the eggs are going to Thales so he can breed them with his babies and we can continue captive breeding efforts. If you are interested, live in North America and are willing to pay overnight shipping and $20 per egg let me know. I will give preference to those who would like more than one cuttle, so that we can all continue to breed these animals. Please be aware, that if this is your first time caring for a cuttlefish, that the food is expensive! I spend from $50-80 per week for live food over the past 5 months... It has been worth it, but it is something to be aware of.

Of course, I cannot guarantee the viability of all the eggs, nor that they will survive shipping, since I am only an individual and not a LFS, but I will do my best to package them carefully and overnight ship them to you.

Thank you.

Yes,
i have emailed her.. that is a typo.. they mean eatch "cluster" will hatch 10-20 cuttles.. so that means 10-20 eggs... they are coming in from the philipines.(which is where S. Bandensis are coming from too).... i have heard many things of seacrop (all good) but i have never heard of anyone ordering their cuttles...
good luck

Hi,
I have kept an octopus before and have wanted to keep a cuttlefish for a while. I live in Oklahoma and would love to purchase a few of your eggs. Due to my family's Christmas schedule though, I do not think it would be wise to purchase them now. Do you think you would have any available after the holidays or in any future batch? Thanks!

Ummm... if you mean me (and I am not sure you do...). I probably won't have anymore (I hope!!!) after Christmas - the ones I have are scheduled to hatch around Christmas and I hope to find homes for them before the holidays. But I will let you know if she has any more eggs.
