:welcome: to TONMO! keep an eye on the "cuttlefish availability" thread, and take a look at the ceph care articles (which are, due to construction, now on the main page).

Where in Canada are you a LFS close to me can get both cuttlefish and eggs if you ask. It's probably the same in your area. LFSs sometimes have them on their lists from suppliers but don't bring them in because the demand is low and they don't want to be stuck with animals or eggs no one wants. Plus they usually don't know anything about them.
