Hi i have had about five octos over the last 6 years now i am trying flamboyant cuttles. They are about 1 1/2 inches each. Both have eaten spirulina feed ghost shrimp 2 each today and 1 each the first day i got them. How much do you feed them? What about lighting i have a LED light that has a Blue actinic feature and other setting is whites. blues and a couple of red. Do they mind bright lighting? I dont know if they are male or female but there is no aggression. Is there a way to tell? Thanks for any input. Tom

@Tomh we have not had many people to be fortunate enough to get flamboyant eggs so there is not much species specific experience to draw from.

Unbelievably cool. They look great. Have you checked out @Thales articles on Daisy Hill Cuttle Farm? I still need to import these onto TONMO; I have his permission! - Metaspeia
