    Hi everyone.

    Im from australia and i have been keeping and breeding Euprymna Tasmanica (Southern Dumpling Squid). They are very suitable for aquariums and quite small so suitable for more smaller tanks. They are nocturnal however mine are just as active throughout the day, (mostly because they always want some food from me ;) ) I also have kept a few occys (including the blue ring) however i dont keep the blue rings anymore as they are just to dangerous to have around (even if you are experienced and know what you are doing accidents do sadly happen).

    Anyway i look forward to getting to know the rest of you and sharing ideas etc. Heres some photos of mine.

    Welcome.:smile:

    I've had E. tasmanica before and was able to breed them they are great ceph's for the home aquarium,and easier to breed than E. scalopes which is found around Hawaii. I'll actually be down your way in June and might pick up a few.

    Thanks everyone for the warm welcome :)

    marinebio_guy, i think eggs would probably be the best to take back with you (to the states i assume?) perhaps even the younger ones, im not sure how the older ones would travel that long on a plane?
