I have been getting eggs on and off for the last month or two. Today I went to pull some and turned a rock around and found about 100. :smile:
We'll see how many are fertile.
I also got some of cuttlegirls eggs so hopefully I can breed them with mine.

Yay!

Adorable little cuttlekins. Very promising indeed.

UGhh, I can't edit my posts right now... I think I have had about a 70% hatch rate on my eggs. I know one person had 10 out of 10 hatch (don't know if the hatchlings made it though...) and another person had 3 out of 4 hatch. I will try to look into this...

Thanks!
I just pulled another 100 or so eggs. Most of the first batch did not hatch. I am trying something different with the new batch.

I think maybe I have too many males in my groups and they keep blowing each others packages out of the female. Sad.
