is paradise pets still open?? ive sent them multiple emails and called but had no response.
I ordered from them once and had a very hard time with communication. I sent a bunch of emails and never heard back either. I wanted to know when they were sending the cuttle eggs i had ordered so I could make sure I was home when they arrived, well two weeks went by and I came home to a package on my door step. When I picked it up it was 100 degrees from baking in the sun all day. needless to say the eggs never hatched.
not encouraging. thanks for the info.
Just got off the phone with paradise pets, confirmed my order and learned that they just got a shipment of eggs that they will be shipping this week. Fingers crossed
How'd this shipment go?
Haven't seen it.
talked to the proprietor of PPS a couple days ago. he promised me cuttles. he said he would make up for the fact that ive been waiting. he delivered.
Awesome. Glad it worked out for you.
hmm. weird. i tried to post a pic of the 10 eggs he sent me for the price of 5, but it didnt work. honestly, they're almost the size of my big toe.
I hope you are a tiny person(J/K), if not it does not sound like those are S.Bandensis.
no exageration: 5/8"

Are the eggs WHITE by chance? Are the round or oblong?
blackish grey, molting their exterior coating.
Well, they are not squid eggs, not broadclub or Metasepia pfefferi(two of the possibilities if they were White discovered when Paradox got a large white one). Can you see any movement in the eggs yet?
Yes. There seems to be some repetative movement followed by a loud thunk. I can't tell, but it looks like there are a set of dumbells and a blender?
Are you hearing a thunk like the movement causes one of the eggs to hit the side of the container or just being ... funny. If you are seeing actual movement can you catch it on video by underlighting the eggs?
yes, ma'am. funny, it is.
*stoically hovering over cuttle tank with cam-corder, awaiting movement*
as soon as i get some good intel onl these lil boogers ill post something up.
wait. what the heck are you doing on here at 4 in the morning???
I keep strange hours
Well, it is a possibility that those are S. officinalis eggs - how big is your tank?
