Cuttlefish have been something I’ve always been fascinated with & have wanted for as long as I can remember. Over the years, I’ve tried to do as much research on them as possible. I’m mainly interested in Flamboyant (Metasepia pfefferi) & Dwarf (Sepia bandensis) but unfortunately there is still...
This is my first post, but I've been keeping juvenile Sepia bandensis (dwarf cuttlefish) for nearly 6 months now. I've finally found time to post about what I've learned in keeping them, and hopefully it will help others who are looking at cuttlefish care!
I'm working on research...
I am working in a lab and we have decided that it would be beneficial to culture cuttlefish. I have been given the responsibility of caring for them and maintaining the tank. We have a consultant coming in to set up the tank so that issue is taken care of, however any tips on caring...
I'm a student at The Evergreen State College and I had the unique experience to study the husbandry of dwarf cuttlefish for college credit!
I wrote a 14 page long technical report about my aquarium setup, my feeding tanks, water quality and basically my entire experience that...
Hello fellow ceph enthusiasts!
I recently (Friday) acquired 2 baby dwarf cuttlefish, and at first was worried that they weren't eating, but then today I was able to watch the larger one (that I call Varamyr) attack and eat a few small amphipods.
The other one, however (that I call Chromia) is...
I'm hoping to be a newbie to cuttlefish soon. I have a friend at the University of Alberta that is starting to work with these wonderful creatures and he is wanting to trade me hatchlings and eggs for some of my baby mollies (SW born and raised), baby guppies (SW born and raised 2nd Gen.) as...
I am thrilled that I have found this forum. Breeding of Sepias is my long live dream. I live in Czech Republic in center of the Europe and my country does not have a sea. Since I was a kid I was fascinated by the sea and the sea-live in general and I have also seen all the...
So hopefully this turns into a very long journal. :smile: (fingers crossed)
Got my cuttlefish eggs from a lfs. $60 bucks for a clutch of eggs seems like a great deal and I may order more.
I recieved 10 eggs that look viable. 2 eggs that are smaller/not inflated.
Two of the viables have...
Wanted to share my first Sepia bandensis experience, and will probably have some questions as well.
I was fortunate enough to get some cuttlefish Sunday evening. Huge special thanks to Rick of New England Aquarium Service and The University of New England.
I will keep a log book...
finally I managed to take a few pictures of "Scooter".
With flash at night :-(.
Scooter is a (I think so by looking in its eyes) S. bandensis.
I got it some days ago from a LFS, which ordered a bunch of S.bandensis eggs from a stocklist and got Scooter with about 2.5" length instead.
I am selling bandensis eggs through www.newalameda.com - a local fish store that I help out.
The eggs/babies are at my place and I bring them over as needed. I should be getting more eggs this week, and right now I have about 10 eggs and 10 babies - the eggs are hatchin!
