@fishnreef

I just checked your site and saw that your mediums and smalls were out of stock. Do you know when they will be back in? There's about a dozen or so aiptasia in my tank plus unknown/unseen in my system, which is reefer 250. Feel free to PM the info.

You have Aiptasia. You want it gone. Make it gone. Click here!
We have just a few left in this batch of large! Please read our Berghia primer on the landing web-page.
Large Berghia will be laying eggs almost immediately setting you tank up for the next wave of baby Berghia which are ready to start munching down Aiptasia.

Great to hear!

Specific Instructions also on our website
- Temperature match for 15 minutes by floating unopened shipment bag with Berghia away from hot lights and turbulent water.
- Use drip method.
- Feed fish first.
- Switch off power heads.
- Switch off lights to minimize fish thinking you are putting in food.
- Release Berghia on rock-work away from high flow areas.
- DO NOT release directly on aiptasia. Aiptasia will sting and eat your berghia. Place berghia near aiptasia, but not close enough for direct contact.
- Berghia are aiptasia predators. They will find the aiptasia.

Can these nudibranchs survive in high flow tanks, or are they limited to low flow only

Also carefully look and count your Berghia before you toss the bag.
Definitely did. Was pleasantly surprised by the small berghia! I ended up drip acclimating for an hour, then releasing into the display. Now all there's left to do is to hope for the best.

Can you define high flow? Is it insane flow? What and how many pumps in what size tank?

Our experience is that Berghia move like other nudibranch. They go where they are comfortable. If the flow is too high for their liking, they will move among the rocks and crevices - which also happens to be where Aiptasia attach their feet.

We recommend medium or large Berghia for higher flow SPS tanks.

Hope this answers your question.

Patience now. As the saying goes, "nothing good comes fast in this hobby". The Berghia do the work for you. They will keep eating and breeding and eating more Aiptasia.

Two questions if I may.

1. I have a smaller six line wrasse, should they be ok? I wish I could catch him, but it's proving to be a challenge.

2. I see you say 8 for heavy infestation per 100 gallon. I have about 15-20 in my 125 I can't get rid of. You think 4-5 large would be ok?

Hi BryanS4,

1. Wrasses don't like eating Berghia, but may take a nip to taste if they haven't seen them before.
2. You probably have 15-20 that you can see. Depending on your rock-work and how spread out your tank is, recommend 8 with 6 on the lower side.

I had an error with the shipping label on my order which impacted delivery. I actually had to go pick up the package at the nearest Fed Ex center the next day. With that said, I was extremely happy with the overall customer service from these guys. The communication was beyond great, from start to finish. The packaging itself was superb and even after the shipping mishap, I was pleasantly surprised to find all the berghia alive and thriving. They even threw in an extra. Sweet! I wouldn't hesitate to order again from these guys. For me, above all else, customer service is how a company defines itself in business, and these guys are top notch. Thanks again.
