Just putting it out there again. I started breeding Berghia Nudibranches and need aiptasia.
I have a copperband and berghias that eat about 30 in a day and can't keep up. Willing to trade Clean live rock for infested ones. I am really looking for rocks with millions and millions of Aiptasia. I started 3 tanks for aiptasia culture and hopefully will have them overrun with aiptasia soon.

Let me know what you have

thanks

Hey Erick,

Berghia only eat aiptasia and nothing else, like anyother soft coral or sea anemones? what happens when all the aiptasia are gone, what u feed them?

thx

They DIE and starve to death. I had a bunch and ran out of aiptasia so they all died. Cleaned out my tank full of aiptasia but it's a cycle. Hence I need more Aiptasia now. I started breeding them again but can't keep up with the demand. If you get about 20 or so they will eat atleast 20 or more aiptasia every other day. If not more. The key is to multiply them first then drop them in your tank as they get bigger. If you don't breed them then you will fail cause they are so small and will never see each other to breed and also the eggs will get eaten before they hatch.

It is a very slow process for killing aiptasia but I had 4 tanks 3 X 50 Gallons and 1 X 90 gallons infested with aiptasia but I cant find a single one now. That's why I need more to keep them alive.

I agitate kill, slice and kill and slice the aiptasia and they multiply but my problem is I cannot keep up with the demand. They eat so much. I need rocks full of them so I can start 3 or 4 more tanks full of aiptasia. Then maybe I can breed more.I only have 3 berghias right now and already running into a problem. Getting more soon.

thanks

I'm not sure when they will hatch and how many but as soon as I have enough I will sell them.

Also I promised a guy that I will help him get rid of his aiptasia problems once I start breeding so he will be the first person to recieve the Berghias.

I will see how many i get not sure yet

thanks

I highly recommend this book, "Breeding Berghia Nudibranches the best kept secret" by Dene Banger, it has just been released on Amazon.com
and here is a link to his website http://breedingberghia.com

Thanks Bubbly

I am having really good success right now. First batch I've counted about 20 berghias already and should be ready in the next 2 weeks. Sorry all gone already. Then I should get them consistently. We will see. I did order the book too. hopefully they have a way to multiply Aiptasia. HAHAHA

You have 20 already!! This is exciting! Wait until you read the book and get set-up with the system he outlines....with the hobbyist level system you should be getting about 100-200 every 4-6 weeks consistently, with the next level of a system about 400-500 and with the commercial system 1000+. Do the math!!! At $10-$20 a pop!

There is also a whole chapter on propagating Aiptasia....how to set-up an Aiptasia system, how to get them to multiply like crazy and what to feed them.....imagine that! We are going to be Aiptasia breeders too!!!! Wait until you read it, "You are going to learn to love them,....and care for them,....." :lol:

I am so fortunate to have met him (and you)....
