Quick Testimonial Here: First off, I had a terrific experience working with Lisa at Salty Underground. Her friendly and informative approach to dealing with my aptasia problem made all the difference. I had (emphasis on "had") an outbreak of aptasia, most likely from a piece of star polyp that I brought home a LFS. After a few months, my tank was riddled with aptasia and I feared the worst: having to start over. I wanted to deal with it "naturally" but didn't know where to start. Tried peppermint shrimp --- they didn't touch it, ordered aptasia X, talked myself out of it --- way too many aptasia and I didn't like the "poison" approach. I then talked to Lisa about the Berghia Nudibranch and eventually ordered 10 after a few discussions. I have to say, at first, I thought --- oh no, they died, didn't have a taste for my aptasia, fish ate them, etc. --- then, after 3 or 4 weeks, my aptasia started to straight-up dissapear. It was no joke, the 1/4" berghia that had gone in the tank were now filling out and growing, I would see them come out at night, then scavenge, only for aptasia, and after a few weeks (which was pretty great to watch) the aptasia was gone. Best part might be the ending. Not only did they clean up the tank, they reproduced. I was able to flip them for some trade at a LFS (they starve after a week, and I didn't want them to starve in my tank --- the LFS had aptasia) --- and now I have some xenia in my tank, and I am 99% aptaisia free. Not concerned about the 1%, b/c the nudibranch reproduced, couldn't catch all of them, and now they have a little bit to feed on. Ok, not so short after all, but I can't say enough good things about my experience with Salty Underground. Special thanks to Lisa --- I would do business with them again in a heartbeat. - Matthew Phillips, Morton IL

Thank you , Thank you, Thank you. We couldn't be more thrilled with our mushrooms, corals and sweet black clown. Everyone acclimated perfectly, and now both clowns and the fire fish are swimming together. I decided against telling the fire fish he isn'...
