Cuttlefish egg bubble?

They seem to be growing pretty quickly and have easily doubled in size since hatching. So far they seem to really only hunt at night and occasionally picking off a mysis that walks too close. During the lights on period they all seem to clump together and hide out in a tiny piece of ulva.

In an effort to cut down feeding costs I added another breeder net and have acclimated a few guppies over to saltwater. One of the females already had a few babies which seemed to have disappeared within an hour of adding them to the cuttlefish breeder. Mysis will still be the bulk of their diet until I can transition to grass shrimp or frozen but hopefully it can at least reduce cost.

Its not so much the depth as the horizontal surface area that matters, if you get a chance on a cheaper, shallower tank, but anything around that size should be plenty of room.

Yeah I get that. I'm limited in floor space though at my current place so trying to find what I can viably do here. Also, today I ran to the lfs and grabbed some ghost shrimp and they snatched them up np. Hopefully now I have better luck training for frozen.
