These guys are getting big! The largest are easily finger-size and they have taken a liking to larger shrimp. Gone are the days of dip-netting pond guppies... until the next batch arrives... :wink:

I can see a few of them have some pigment, good luck! Bye the way, Sepioteuthis is what kind of squid? Until my copy of Cephalopods: A World Guide arrives, I'm damn near a novice.

Did I ever tell you that Dr. O'Shea(ve)
Had ninety-four squid, and he named them all Dave?

Well, he did. And that wasn't a smart thing to do.
You see, when he wants one, and calls out "Yoo-Hoo!
Come into the house, Dave!" he doesn't get one.
All twenty-three Daves of his come on the run!

This makes things quite difficult at the McCaves'
As you can imagine, with so many Daves.
And often he wishes that, when they were born,
He had named one of them Bodkin Van Horn.
And one of them Hoos-Foos. And one of them Snimm.
And one of them Hot-Shot. And one Sunny Jim.
Another one Putt-Putt. Another one Moon Face.
Another one Marvin O'Gravel Balloon Face.
And one of them Zanzibar Buck-Buck McFate...

But he didn't do it. And now it's too late.

:wink:

(with all due respect to Dr. Seuss)
