I am hatching 10 Bandensis cuttle eggs. 5 hatched (one in the bag while bringing it home!) since Wednesday and they have been doing okay. I lost one this morning and am wondering for ideas why. Stats: 20 gal hex with breeder net. Ammonia 0, nitrite 0, nitrate 5 ppm. ph 8.2, salinity 1.0245 (1.024 and 1/2) If I had any contaminants (i.e. copper) they would all just die or look sick, right? The only thing I did change was moving the breeder net to a area of the tank with less flow. I had read that eggs should have good flow and oxygen so I put the breeder on the opposite side of the tank but in front of the exit of the filter. The cuttles seemed healthy and moved, but did not do alot of color changing or interaction with each other. When I moved them to a side fo the tank with less flow -afterwards they all moved ALOT more and started interacting and flashing each other. I guess they were getting buffeted by too much flow for such little guys. Any other ideas? Do they have a relaxed color state? They were mostly white, now they are mostly patterned brown/red. Do babies just die often?
