Hello, I'm here to give a try on some Berghia nudibranch breeding.
Never try this so, all the help is welcome.

This is my setup right now.
  1. 10g Aiptasia breed tank
  2. 5g for my Adult Berghia
After a failed attempt to put the berghias in the 5g tank, they lay eggs but after a few days, the adult berghias die, even with some aiptasia in little rocks. After watching some videos and reading some threads, most of the breeders just put the aiptasia in the aquarium, whit no rock.

So I decided to try another method, to put adult berghias in small cups, let them lay eggs wait a few days, transfer them to another cup, and start to feed them inside the cups until they get adult size.

Here are some Pics of my setup.

Now 3 weeks to see if the eggs hatch. and get a few more adult berghias, since my 4 died.

Here's the first update.

After a few moments of panic thinking, I killed all my berghias and tried to understand how, here's what I found walking around the sponge filter.
