Aptasia killers

Hi all,

I am in the process of acclimating some thing called Berghia verrucicomis nubibranch in to my 26 gal tank. These fellows are supposed to eat my huge population of Aptasia.

Does anyone know if these things work or have I wasted my money (again).

I use Joe's Juice to get rid of the aptasia. I never tried one of those.
Check out the little red house for directions to my tank journals.

I've used Berghia a number of times. They will eat 99% of the Aiptasia, and then die. That can be useful, but the Aiptasia will remain.
