Thank you for great explanation ,looking forward to get my order next week..
Well said. It's also how we control algae as well.
Choose tank-mates that may eat it.
I have ONE aptasia in my 55g. Been like that for many many months. One of my fish clearly eats the smaller ones. I'd bet it's the Pygmy angel.
I usually have to buy 5 or 6 every year. They do wipe out the aiptasia but it's not complete. They come back. However, it's the easiest way to treat the pest. Place them around the tank on the rocks and watch them disappear. Then over the next week or two I'll notice the aiptasia slowly disappearing. Then I'll see them come back and when I get tired of looking at them, I know it's time to reorder.
Discussion? Im up for it, ive been breading them for 2 years now. Ill share everyone my success so people can see my experience.
Always kept a broodstock on hand for this reason =) . Unless you want to loose all your berghia, one should keep them in their tank untill the job is done.
DOES BERGHIA EATS MOJANO/?
Nope only aiptasia
I need some of these... had to get rid of my File fish that was eating my zoas do you have a link for orders??? My # is 203 623 2653 you can text me a link if you want
Berghia, like most all nudibranchs, have highly specialized diets. Berghia ONLY eat the Aiptasia species anemones. Kinda wish they did eat Majano's only if they did they might also eat other anemones.
Just placed my order with you folks this past weekend!
Shipping with this company is super flexible! They will send to a local fedex that you can pick up from work at the end of the day.
Looking forward to getting my order Thursday!
Pleasure speaking with you on the phone Pete.
Did you put that you were a R2R member in the comments section of the order. If not PM me ASAP so I can get your name, as I want to make sure you receive your Free Small Berghia as a R2R member.
You can't trick me! Hahahaha I'm not reading those six posts.
No Tricks....No Worries....
Thank You for the explaination.
By any chance do you know what creates EAT Majano's?
thank you. do you know how to get rid of majano
Sorry I don't, but if you find out PLEASE pass it along.... One side note is that I have had success treating Majano's with Aiptasia X and other chemical treatments because I don't believe they have the same ability as Aiptasia to respond with planulae larvae expulsion. Seems they only reproduce by basal disk laceration. However, they LOVE to travel around and make babies, probably why they are usually found in a concentrated area.
Tell you the truth, im not very sure. Im not sure if theres a predator, but manual removal may work. They dont really take over quickly like aiptasia do, so you can work on trying to pluck them out without any real issues
I was asked to post a few pics...so I'm gonna go through my files and look for some good ones....This Berghia is about an inch long.
Don't have many before and after pics....usually only before....but here the first 3 pics are before Berghia and the last 2 are after they did their job....
Got my little ones today and they look great!! Super cool looking too. I never thought I'd be glad to have aiptasia.
Excellent packaging as well!
They are just finished acclimating and I put the container in my tank! Plopped the container on my frag rack where there are several decent sized aiptasia in a small area that they'll find regardless of what direction the exit the container. They're taking their sweet time.....
Thanks @Reeftown Jeff!!!
