I was told these are cuttlefish eggs but doesn't look like any I have seen. Anyone know what they might be?

How big are they? There isn't anything to reference to in the photo.

I agree with you, they aren't like any cuttle eggs I have seen.

LFS. How can you tell they are bad? Should I just feed them to my fish? If any are good I'd like to try and hatch them. I thought squid eggs were a single squid in each strand? These have 4-5 in each strand.

Each strand is about 2" long.

Cuttlefish have single eggs squid can lay strands. I can tell that they may be bad because of the milky look to the individual eggs, good eggs would be clear and you could see the yolk/embryo. You can look through the "fingers" and see if any of them look good.
