We have a lot left that need to be sold this week before they starve.

Berghaii Nudibranches Lot prices:
3 for $27 5 for $40 8 for $50 $5.50 ea in larger quantity's.


An easy effective way of getting rid of Aiptasia. The following is a little about Berghias written by a breeder:

"I've cultured berghia for over 3 years now and the only time I've heard of people not having success in eradication of aiptasia is due to stocking a tank too lightly. The vast majority of the aiptasia will be eaten by hatchlings of the adults you add. I've found that a stocking density of 1-2 adult berghia per 10 gallons is a good volume to allow for the adults to be able to find each other often enough to maximize breeding capability. The massive volume of berghia that hatch from the egg strands will immediately begin munching away at aiptasia. When stocked with berghia in the proper volume, a tank filled with aiptasia will show a small decline of aiptasia in the first 2-3 weeks and at week 4 and 5 the aiptasia will disappear very fast and you'll begin to see berghia everywhere (mostly seen at night since berghia are nocturnal). Hundreds of berghia will emerge and you'll have more berghia than aiptasia in very short order. That's the time when you need to start sharing the berghia with a friend because they'll starve when all the aiptasia are gone.

A question I typically get is "Will my wrasses eat the berghia?" Many people have heard of a friend of a friend of a friend who had a wrasse pick at and eat berghia. After culturing berghia for over 3 years now and having sent them out to hundreds of people all over the United States, I have yet to ever hear of anybody personally experience the predation of any berghia by wrasses, shrimp, or other reef tank inhabitant. I personally have a five bar mystery wrasse, melanarus wrasse, and a coral banded shrimp and my tank is currently full of berghia with my aiptasia near eradication. "


I have about 90 left.

Berghai's are gone. I will be doing pre-orders in the future since they have such a short shelf life without aiptasia.
