Live Cuttles or Eggs?

So my friend and I want to get a cuttlefish or two. We were gonna get eggs, but it sounds like feeding the hatchlings would be an expensive disaster for us.

I've read that eggs ship better than live cuttles, but i was wondering if anyone had firsthand experience. Can anyone give me a rough servival rate or something? I think these things are tank raised/bred, so hopefully they'll be more hardy.

Is there anything less expensive you can feed them then the mysid shrimp?
How do you keep them alive? Do you need a separate tank for the food?
