Thanks for the Berghia

Hey, Got everything in and acclimated the Bergia yesterday. They were active in the holding cup while I was acclimating them. The heat pack was still warm and that probably helped a lot. Thanks for the berghia and wish me luck. Ray

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

I got a good shot of what I believe to be my biggest Berghia from my first order. If so this would make him about 5 1/2 months (6-8 weeks at Salty Undergound and 3 1/2 months in my tanks). I figure that he is at least 1 1/4" long without being str...
