Will a royal gramma eat Berghia Nudibranch ? The only other fish in the tank is a pj cardinal and some snails looking to rid my aiptasia for about 5 small ones would 3 nudis suffice for a 30g long 3ft ?

Mine doesn't... in fact, nothing has that I've seen here. The Six Line inspected one once but didn't take a taste.
No wrasses in the tank so that’s a plus looking for a more natural approach than chemical got aiptasia that what hiding under a monti cap and slowly spread it’s not severe at all apart from the large one that’s irritating my purple Goni got about 5 in total I can see but there’s probably more lurking

Turn the pumps off and gently place the nudibranch near the aiptasia. Not ON it, NEAR it. Once they are happily on the rocks you can turn the pumps back on.

………. I have lps so peppermint is out the question
Interesting observation. For the last six years or so I always have true Peppermint shrimps in my tank, and none of them touch my colonies of hammer, trumpets, torches and chalices. Well, not that I have seen anyways.

I used to have a colony of acan, but it got taken over by a spreading GSP colony.

At any rate, because of my “luck”, I swear by peppermint shrimps for aiptasia control. Natural, cheap and effective.

Your good

It’s certain types of wrasses that will eat the nudis

I think my court jester got fat and happy from the nudis. I put three orders in, one after the other, not a nudi to be found. Astapia growing larger and more of them. I ended up gluing each one in.

Since I started my thread about micro brittle stars eating Nudis figured I’d post this for you since you didn’t find it yourself and a link to my thread
