What sp. are they. I'm no cuttle expert, but I would suggestcombing through the cuttle care section. Water quality and stability will be at the top of you list.

Good luck!

Finnaly the first one hatched, there soo tiny and it changed color from light to dark red as soon as I moved some algae in the net breeder to get a better look. How do I know which of the eggs are empty, they all still look inflated.

I kept between 5 and 7 per net breeder with no cannibalism. I had easy access to pods so I fed them 3 or 4 times a day.

If the eggs look like a full balloon they should be viable. If they look like a oblong grape, the prolly aren't.
