other cultured species from Aquaculture 101 (octopets)

Cuttle fish will be the next species we culture S. officinalis. It will be 6 months to a year before they are available. I will post a message when we get our broodstock.

Hi Jim,

Are your plans to culture any other species of octopus? Also, are bimacs available all year long, or only seasonally?

Thanks,
Nancy

cultured octopus

nancy,

I'm looking into culturing the stuby squid (Rossia pacifica) and the Red Octopus (Octopus Rubescens). I will get the broodstock soon and hopefully next summer they will be available.

how hard is it to hatch and raise baby octo? do i need to do anything special to keep them from being sucked into the filtration, or can the swim well enough to avoid it?

Ha Jim I am thinking of getting 2eggs what size tank do you keep you eggs in?

I was thinking of putting the eggs in a 2gallon till thay hatch, then in a 5gallon till thay get bigger growing them out in a 10, and when there big enough the'll say in my 55gallon.

Dose that sound ok?
