    I've had a slight cuttlefish obsession since I don't know when and am planning on ordering 3 eggs soon within the next few weeks. I've been doing my fair share of research and I will probably use brine shrimp and ghost shrimp as food. I could really use a couple tips if anybody has any. Thanks!

    Hi Lexi,

    Welcome! Please do a little more research before purchasing your eggs. Brine shrimp are a bad (terrible) food choice. What type of tank do you have? How long has it been set up? Mysids are the preferred food of hatchlings, and salt water shrimp once they grow a bit. Make sure you have a live food source in place once you get the eggs, since you will not know when they will hatch and you don't want to wait for a shipment of live food.

    I understand the cuttlefish obsession!

    They're gonna start off in my 14g biocube til they get bigger then they'll go into a 40g. I've had my both for a good couple years now and I didn't want to put them in the 40g to start because I want to keep an eye on them.
