    If you think they could ship in Europe, it should be interresting...

    Hello,

    Does it keep symbiotic bacterium in your laboratory? Did you hatch this species?

    Thank you

    Sepiola are very similar. I've had euprymna from NRCC before. Didn't do too well but they are fantastic animals that I would love to try again! Marinebio_guy... send Leigh the love from all in Bio Services in Sunny England!

    It is had to tell but I think so, There light is very dim so I would not be able to see it with the lights in the lab. Yes we do hatch our own.
