Hi All !

One of my six Cuttles started laying eggs yesterday. (took the female about 2 hours to lay 38 eggs) The male kept hanging around, and blew water over the eggs whilst the female was laying them. Very interesting to watch the female attach the eggs, first the egg is held in her tentacles, she then pushes it against the rock and then releases some gelatinous drops next to the eggs. (this probably attaches the eggs) Managed to video this, but file too big to upload.

Should I place an airstone close to the eggs ?

Can you PLEASE try to upload to YouTube and then place the share link here (which will embed it for local play). You can make YouTube videos semi-private (only viewed if you have the link but anyone with the link can view) if you want to limit viewing but still share. Vimeo is also a popular upload site that has extended size allowances. I am not sure of the sizing and I have posted enough on YouTube to qualify for extra length but I don't recall the max for initial posters.

By end of year I should have a true videos upload solution, so you can do it on site.
