Brine shrimp isn't that good a food source for cephs and problems have been known to occur when babies are raised on brine shrimp. Frozen enriched mysis would be better and if you could get amphipods they'll be quite content.

we can't really collect tiny crabs (I know this is not good) but we do have frozen mysis and I have amphipods in my refugium so finding the food shouldn't be a problem it is getting them to eat the problem but they have not hatch yet so lets wait until they hatch and will keep all of you updated!
Thx for the suggestions!

If I am not wrong they have started developing for about 30 days or so and will certainly post more images when there are more changes with the eggs!!! and will need some advice once the eggs hatch.

I hate to add something really obvious and stupid, but since nobody else has stepped up to the plate, I feel it's my responsibility.

What to offer to a baby cuttle?

How about gold, frankincense, and myrrh?

It should be easy for you to collect pods from under some rocks just above the tideline around the bay. Flip a rock and they should be jumping. Scoop the sand/rock into a bucket, add a net and voila!
