After lots of research for multiple years, I finally bi the bullet and got 14 s. bandensis eggs through the lfs that I work at. I am not sure when they will hatch, and I can't find any specific articles or pages that say how old they should be when offered food. I have found a source for live mysids, but it is expensive to ship and since i know many will die if they stay in my "mysis tank" for an extended period of time, I want to only order them once I know my cuttles are ready. The site ships them overnight, so they will get to my house the night after I order. I just want to know, how old should my cuttles be before I order food? And how old should I be before I feed them the shrimp?
