Hello everyone, I have a 20 gallon high and was wondering is this okay for a cuttlefish?
I can get them at my Lfs but they only have eggs. What can I feed the baby?

Can they eat frozen when they are babies?

You need to feed them LIVE mysids. Brine will not have enough nutrition and they will die. They also won't eat frozen as babies. Usually when older they will eat frozen but you may always have to feed live. Keep in mind their lifespan is only about a year but you will need several weekly or at the very least bi-weekly shipments of live mysids for them to survive.
