Hello Folks,
I wanted to share some updates from our most recent attempt at the high school with Sepia bandensis. We received these as hatchilngs a few months ago and have weaned them from live mysis to live grass shrimp to frozen krill. Now, it looks like they are starting to mature and mate! Hopefully, we'll have some eggs soon.
















It was much easier taking care of these, and our other tanks, with 75 students helping - of course, schools have closed and students haven't been in the lab for nearly 4 weeks. Caveat, the tanks will be a bit more dirty than usual...

I'll continue to share updates with these awesome animals as we get them!

Greg
