I have 20, large adult cuttlefish (Sepia officinalis) they are kept in groups of ten between two large plastic tanks. In these tanks I have noticed a clear viscous fluid (not the coloured ink) at the waters surface that is regularly peppered with pink particles.
Does anyone know what it is that they are producing and why??
Each tank has fresh seawater inflow and an outflow, and air lines. The cuttles are each fed one live common shore crab daily, and sometimes frozen whitebait too. They are kept in mixed sex groups.
