New baby cuttles

Jan 4, 2006
A couple of weeks ago I got 4 cuttle eggs. All hatched and looked great. They all ate and grew in the net breeder. I had plenty of hiding places and they all seemed to hang out together.
Slowly they have been being killed by each other until I only have one fat healthy one left.
Bill (my original cuttle) is over 8 months now, but going strong (just over 2" mantle length).

I figure he will be gone just about when the little cannibal will be ready to leave the net breeder.

Wish me luck!

Well, I hope he lasts to become the new Bill.

You've had Bill a long time! Does he interact with you at all? (Like sit on your finger)?
