Changed the tank to a cuttlefish reef last month. Got cuttle eggs on the 19th of July. Complained just yesterday the eggs weren't hatching. Woke up this morning to this! Who's yer daddy! Three babies hatched overnight. I won't be able to get mysis until at least Wednesday. Will they be OK? I do have tiny (1/16") red feeder shrimp for a baby angler. Will they work?

Yeah two have died but they didn't look great to begin with. The other three are starting to swim a little but still no interes in the mysis.

Good luck I'm getting a cluster tomorrow. They are sepia officianalis aka common cuttles. A temperate species. I really want S. bandensis but still excited as hell. I'll be following your progress.

I got my cuttle eggs from NY Aquatic. I ordered 3 for $19.99 and received 8 out of which five hatched.
