Hi, I have kept successive batches of european cuttlefish and am now looking to breed them. At the moment they are at15-16 degrees C and are being fed mostly on live shore crabs, how do I get them into the mood?
I never knew thats what happened...i thought the mating was successful? or did you buy eggs afterwards collin? - anyway
I know righty kept his in adjacent compartments and then allowed them to move together when he wanted them to mate - he certainly didnt seem to have trouble getting them to do their thing! lol (maybe he was playing Isaac Hayes in the background?) but i guess separating them in sight of each other might be worth a try? - i have used this technique with freshwater fish and axolotls and it worked (but that might have been a coincidence lol (the book i got the idea from was veeeery old...veeeery old)
