After 6 years of being Ceph-free I am thinking about getting back into it with a Sepia b tank. I would most likely get a bunch of 5-6 eggs and keep them in an 8 gal nano until they get big enough for my 40. Since it has been 7 years since I have kept them, I am wondering what the new trends are.

Thanks

Will

William,
For 99% of the successes, initial foods are live mysid. There are a few other successes scattered in the forums but not with anything as large as pods.

I wish I could offer more help but I am an octo keeper and have very little cuttle experience (primarily because of the first month of feeding). I will suggest that you consider putting breeders net inside the larger tank rather than using the small tank just for water quality and stability while they are developing. Anecdotally, PH swings seem to have a negative affect on the eggs.

I just moved my 6 week old hatchlings to common shore shrimp (Palaemonetes Vulgaris). Both Sachs Aquaculture and LiveBrineShrimp.com sell them. It is much more substantial food and easier to keep than mysids. I probably could have moved them earlier, but the new hatchlings do very well on live mysids.
