Default Berghia Nudibranch - Aiptasia Munchers

Hi Paul,

Here is another source for Aiptasia eating nudibranchs:

And now for a bit of identification trivia:

The Aiptasia eaters we've all been calling Berghia verrucicornis or
just Berghia are apparently a different species entirely. Here's the
411 on the real Berghia.
Berghia verrucicornis
They're from the eastern Atlantic - Africa and possibly Europe - and
appparently not much is known about their habits or diet.

And here's the info on the slug that we've been calling Berghia:
Aeolidiella stephanieae

As an aside, the Sea Slug Forum lists three different species of
Berghia and seven of Aeolidiella.

In the end, it doesn't really make a lot of difference since you still
want to ask for "Berghia" when you're in the market for an Aiptasia
eating nudi.

Taxonomically yours,


thanks for the info Alex.
Paul S.

My problem is having enough of the aiptasia to feed the baby nudi's

propagation of aiptasia?(besides Joes Juice!)

I have the aip in a catchbasin with barb worms and added exceptionable critters and its as absorbing as any added catchbasin I accept is, sometimes added so. I rarely pay any absorption to this catchbasin in commendations to tests and water changes, and it looks fantastic.
