    Hello to all. I know someone who has attained some Metasepia Spp. and needs information about them. One of the females just laid a bunch of eggs and we can't find any information on breeding or raising them. He's asked me to try and find out any information I could. Any help about general husbandry and/or breeding/raising Metasepia Spp. would be greatly appreciated.

    There is very little info. Treat them like bandensis, but feed them a ton and hope. I understand your friend works at a public aquarium - would you please put us in contact?

    Your PM said they were from Japan, so they are M. Tullbergi. :D

    Yes I've tried to locate information on them months ago, but was not very successful. I know there are two seperate species in the Metasepia family, the Pfefferi and Tullbergi. Other then where they are located geographically I can't find any information that would help to identify the species. From what I've learned via online refernces, the animals look EXACTLY the same. But like I said and like you noted, information is far and in between. Being a dwarf species, does Metasepia (like S. Bandensis) lay multiple times throughout their life span?
