Jabba passed away on May 5th. He was not interested in eating the night before and I wondered, once again, if this was his last day. I enjoyed hatching and raising this group but probably won't revisit keeping cuttlefish.
Thanks for documenting your trials with cuttlefish as well as you did, It's very inspirational to see; it can be a real struggle raising those tikes. I know you said you won't revisit raising cuttlefish, but I hope you do anyways.
Thanks for the nice comments . I have noted that you are passing it forward with your frequent cycling updates, and I expect your journal will be helpful to many. For new keepers, reading or following along with a member at the same phase of keeping or cycling can really add to the experience and grow confidence.
I tend to be a bit overly verbose at times but there are times when I review my own journals looking for past experiences and am frustrated that I failed to record something that would be helpful.
Do note that I am NOT even close to considering not keeping cephs but have found I prefer octopuses and nautilus to bandensis. I had hoped to keep a new nautilus but that will have to wait until fall (if I am lucky, hopefully I will transport one home after TONMOcon VI but a lot of things have to fall into place). I am looking for an octo (or two) but the heat and availability have not worked out yet.
