    I bought some from a guy in the Dublin area in 2013 or so. They did a great job and I've been aiptasia free until about a year ago after picking up a coral or two since then. Is there anyone locally breeding and selling them?

    I love that these guys take out aiptasia in the overflow, sump, everywhere!!! Peppermint shrimp have been great over the years but only get the aiptasia in the display tank and they like to strip the food from the coral during feeding. So I'm done with peppermint shrimp.

    You might want to try a file fish too. I forget which company it was (I think biota), but one of them was captive breeding them and training them to eat aptasia by only feeding it to them.

    Found a couple of them in my tank this morning as they're basically out of aips and are wandering around. There's more in the tank, but can't locate them. $10 each if you're interested. Free if you become a supporting member. Pick up in Santa Clara in the next couple of days.

    bummer - missed that.
    Scuzy - let us know if you have extra eggs or even larger berghia for us to buy off of you later. I remember seeing the egg swirls more than a few times when I picked up mine years ago.

    I can't even find them anymore in my tank. Will have to see if they show up.
