Hello. First post. It seems there is a guarantee of no flaming and I don't think my question will get a flaming . Anyway I'm just starting to really think about keeping one Sepia Bandensis, raising it from an egg and I was thinking about food. Of course I probably won't get near starting this tank up for a year or so... My question is, would daphnia work? They live in salwater for some time, they're easy to culture, and I "gutload" them. Now I'm not sure how much nutrients they have from my gutloading, but my freshwater fish seem to be very happy now from their daily live food offerings rather than their pellet foods (for some reason my Boraras micros seem happier with the life food). Usually people feed daphnia yeast water or green water, but for me I just put in like 5 pinches of normal fish food and its either the bacteria eat that food and the daphnia eat the bacteria, or the pond snails in the tank are eating the food, and pooping out good stuffies for the daphnia and bacteria. Anyway I think I'm getting them full of good stuff by feeding them in this way. And I was wondering, could I gutload my daphnia with cuttlefish desired nutrients and feed the daphnia to the cuttlefish newborn? For now I was just thinking saltwater fish food. But are there some nutrients that cuttlefish really love that could be good to get vitamins of and then dissolve the vitamins in the daphnia water? But then I just realized the cuttlefish would quickly get too big for daphnia. Well would it work for the first few weeks of tinyness? Thanks! P.S. I just tested how long daphnia would live in water of SG 1.026 and it swam "lively" in the water for around 2 min before it started hanging around in the bottom slugishly. Would that be too quick for cuttlefish?
