    tank size for hatchlings?

    Hello! I'm working with Octopus bimaculoides and looking at trying to rear some fertilized eggs. I would like to raise them in different tanks than the adults are housed in for logistical reasons (mostly to prevent them from going into the filtration system, but also to better track their...

    My octopus laid eggs... and they just hatched! What do I do?!

    Hi All - I have a warm water indo-pacific octopus (that's all the LFS was able to tell me about species). About a week after I got it it disappeared into the back of the tank where it laid eggs. From everything I read, I was pretty bummed as I figured it was just going to wither away and die...

    Success: raising Sepia bandensis from the egg!

    Hi everyone! 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...

    Baby squid care

    So one of the local wholesalers managed to get their hands on a batch of squid eggs of a currently unknown species. My LFS bought some and I'll be going in tomorrow to check them out and offer the owner any advice I can. I'm familiar with keeping octopuses, having kept several, and have done...

    Bimac Hatchlings

    Since I'm 3 days away from receiving my first bimac hatchlings I thought this was a good time to start journaling, both for my sake and for others who may be doing the same thing in the future. First, a brief synopsis of how this came to be: I became interested in octopus many years ago...

    Hatchling Bimacs looking for homes

    I'm a student at Boston University working on Bimacs for a senior thesis project. Two of my research animals laid eggs and I've been taking care of the hatchlings for about 2 weeks now. Our lab doesn't have the room or resources to take care of them, so I'm looking for homes for all 30 of...

    Aculeatus Hatchlings

    We have found three of them so far. I had not made plans to try raising them, but we have caught three so far. I wish a breeder was close enough to come get some and give them a shot. http://www.tonmo.com/forums/showthread.php?20363-Heidi-A.-aculeatus

    MiniCons: Gainesville, GA - Kooah's Hatchlings

    I mentioned in Kooah's thread that I gave an open invitation to members of the Atlanta Reef Club to "come and get it" if anyone wanted to try to attempt to raise a few of Kooah's young. No one on the forum (present company excluded) keeps any kind of ceph and I didn't really expect much...
