I bought 10 berghias for my 125 that had a mild infestation of anemones in October 2014. Based on the readings I knew it might take a couple months to rid my tank but I was prepared to wait. I received the nudi's well packaged with the pipette. After carefully removing their fragile bodies into the tank they quickly started moving around. By the time I got the canopy back on and the pumps running again, I couldn't find a single one! Weeks went by and I would try to find them at night with no avail. Weeks turned into months and I started to notice I didn't have many aiptasia left but I thought it was probably for another reason then the nudi's I put in 2 months ago that I haven't seen since. I then had to replace my tank because the brace cracked. After that I was sure that no nudi's would survive that since I have read how fragile they are. It's now been 4 months since I put the nudi's in the original tank. I looked at the tank yesterday right when the lights came on and wouldn't you know it!! A healthy 1/4 berghia was hanging out underneath a frag plug!!! Salty Underground Berghia's are SURVIVORS!!
