Aiptasia-munching Berghia nudibranchs are in stock at Tropical Marine Centre's Manchester and London branches.

If you're struggling with those pesky nuisance anemones in your marine aquarium, you could probably do with a bit of help. Berghia nudibranchs are a natural control for Aiptasia in the reef tank, preying exclusively on these pests, but unfortunately they're not something you see in the shops with any regularity.

As these nudibranchs eat only Aiptasia, they will starve to death once they have cleared up those in your tank. However, this can be avoided by moving them onto other reefkeepers who have similar problems — or even returning them to the shop.

Please note that TMC supplies to the trade only, however if you see something you like, your local dealer may be able to get it for you.
