I am currently having a discussion with another cuttlefish keeper about the appropriate diet for them, this person claims that frozen shrimp alone is perfectly sufficient for long term health and growth. I know that in the wild these guys would certainly not eat shrimp every meal, every day. I was of the opinion that giving them a varied diet of shrimp, clams, and marine fish would be more advantageous. Ideally these frozen foods would of course be a supplement to live crabs and shrimp. We can agree that live foods are preferred, however, they still believe that the frozen shrimp alone is enough. I was wondering if anyone could point me to any really good reference works on the subject. Personal experience is great as well, however it does not have the convincing power of the printed word. I would love to find some really in depth scientific articles or detailed books that I might be able to get access to. Your help would be much appreciated!
