I had my cuttlefish arrive here yesterday afternoon from California. They were packed well but only had a 12 hr heat pack so were pretty cold when they made it here. There were three bags, two with a bunch of eggs in each, and one that had two cuttles that had hatched before shipping. Five eggs hatched in shipping in each bag. One of the bags was very cloudy and mercy and none of the cuttlefish were looking good off the back. I think a few of them must have inked or one of the undeveloped eggs could have popped, spewing yolk everywhere. Anyways, I slowly acclimated and split everything between two net breeders. The cuttlefish/eggs from the bad bag in one breeder, and the cuttlefish from the bag that was fine, and the two that had hatched before shipping in the other. By yesterday night, 2 of the cuttlefish from the bad bag had died. Tonight, 4 of the cuttles from the bad bag are dead, so only one remains. From the good bag/already hatched net breeder, five have died, leaving two. I've now put all three together in one net breeder and put a bunch of mysis in there for them. As for the eggs, I can clearly see live cuttlefish in five if not six eggs so we'll see how they turn out when they hatch. My problem is that I've now had nine die and I'm not sure what from. It becomes obvious that they are going to die because I am able to clearly see the cuttlebone inside of them when I shine a flashlight at them. This is because it seems like the skin with any pigmentation/ chromatophores is coming off leaving just a white, milky covering behind. What could be happening? I'd really like to save the rest of these as they weren't cheap and it took me a LONG time to track them down and purchase them.
