Berghia are a natural predator to eradicate one of the most troublesome pest organisms in marine aquaria, Aiptasia anemones. They are therefore the most perfect and highly desirable solution for aquarist.
Berghia are easy to keep and care for in a reef aquarium as long as there is food (Aiptasia) to eat and the water quality is good. They therefore will do well in most established reefs aquarium.
Berghia nudibranch only eat Aiptasia. There is no point trying to feed them anything else. They get their color from the Aiptasia they eat. They absorb the pigment from the Aiptasia
Berghia Nudibranch have evolved methods of approaching the Aiptasia that prevent the defensive mechanics of the Aiptasia kicking in. Aiptasia will not attack with their stinger cells nor release planula larva into the water when Berghia slugs approach like they do when other dangers approach.
Some of the most important benefits with Berghia are:
We recommend at least 8-10 Berghia per 100 gallons of water for a moderate Aiptasia problem (50-100 aiptasia per 100 gallons). Getting the right number of Berghia is important. You want to have enough Berghia in your tank so they can find each other to mate and lay eggs. The nudibranch eggs may hatch and continue to populate the tank until the Aiptasia are gone. Use the adult Berghia calculator below to help estimate the number of Berghia you need for your tank. Very heavy Aiptasia outbreaks may require even more Berghia.
