Hey everyone! My name is Declan and I have just taken on the challenge of raising S. bandensis, the dwarf cuttlefish. Earlier today I picked up my eggs, they are fairly round and some of them have visible embryos developing already! This is my first time raising cephalopods and I am aiming to only raise one this time around as I only have a twenty gallon species tank. However, I did purchase seven eggs (in case some don't hatch or do well after hatching) from a friend who owns a LFS and I wanted to know what to look for as they develop, as well as the best way to tackle feeding new born cuttlefish. I know I will need plenty of mysid shrimp but I wanted to know when I should start feeding larger foods and what is recommended as the best food for the dwarfs after they mature? I'd appreciate any feedback from you guys and gals and want to make sure I do this right; my tank is well cycled and has a steady amphipod population for hunting when my new friend gets bigger, but the looming question of how exactly these delicate animals should be handled still remains. I've been reading forums here on TONMO and have also read the book Cephalopods; Octopuses and Cuttlefishes for the Home Aquarium multiple times, but as I've been saying, any direct information from people who have been doing this for awhile is happily welcomed! Sincerely, Declan PS I know there is no way a twenty gallon tank can house seven cuttlefish, so I made arrangements to sell back any juveniles to my friend for nearly full price as he is interested in raising them as well.
