I've been working with sepia bandensis for about 6 months now and have been having great success with breeding. They started showing signs of mating at the 13-14 week old mark, which is a little sooner than normal. The temperatures here have been pretty high over the past few weeks, keeping the water temp in the mid 80's and speeding along the aging process of these guys. So far I'm up to three egg clutches, totalling about 60 eggs.

The first egg clutch I discovered wasn't in very good shape, and half of the eggs don't look viable, but the other 2 attempts look good.
