I have some Euprymna scolopes for sale if any one is interested. You can keep 2 in a 30galon no problem 1-2" sand bed and a red light for night time viewing. Very small the size of a grape. 70-73F Email me directly for more info. firstname.lastname@example.org
They are about the size of a grape, The small ones are the size of a coffee bean. Some mated last night and layed eggs this morning. They are extremely cool and very very hard to come by. They are very interesting to watch hunt with a red light on the tank. During the day, you can only see eyes sticking out of the sand. There are some more pics on my home page. I must say all though tiny, they are extremely exciting to watch. It blows your mind to have this tiny little squid hunting right before your eyes.
Eggs were laid today so it will be a couple of months before the captive reared ones are ready, provided all goes well. The ones I have for sale right now are wild caught and very small. Coffee bean size. And I must say they are very cute little cephs.
Their life span is under 6 months and they are eating small live shrimp about 1" in length. Very cool hunters jumping out of the sand to snag their prey. I am adding some new pics to my site later of night time breeding.
I collected the zooplankton my self so it is a mixture of species, The loss rate can be high if not given constant care when they first hatch with deaths attributed to lack of food. They also need a upwelling tank for the first couple of weeks because they are in a planktonic phase.
