    Ok. Will place an order for next week. If I put 6 or 8, would it speed up the process?

    Yes, as it increases their reproduction exponentially.

    Hi,

    Could you tell me how long should we wait for introducing Berghia Nudibranchs after we have used RedSea Aiptasia X in tank to kill some aiptasia ?
    Also, if we order some eggs, should we hatch then first before even putting them in tank ?

    Regards,
    Abhishek

    If you have used a chemical on Aiptasia you should wait a coupla weeks for them to depurate out any chemical remains. If the Berghia were to eat an Aiptasia that had been treated prior to depuration it could possibly kill it.
    As far as eggs are concerned, if you purchase some you should put them in a crevice of a rock in the display. however, it is better to just get plenty of berghia because each medium (adult) lays 1 egg whorl EVERY 1-3 days. Much more cost effective.
