I was just wondering if anyone knows where I can get a Berghia, it's my last option before I have to move on to chemical remedies and I really want to avoid that. If anyone can point me in the right direction I'd be so thankful!

species name perhpas, as nudibranch can be hard to ID.
id suggest vebas would be a best contact point for something like this.
may I ask what you are trying to do? apitasia removal?

I thought they are just called Berghia nudibranchs
Cool, I will try them, thanks!
Yeah, Aiptasia removal, planning on passing the nudi on once he's done his job

Agreed with Riggers, Chelmon rostaratus and a couple other butterfly sp are know to eat aptasia, but also may nip at coral polyps. Peppermint shrimp are known to as well, mine never did.
I used to mix calcium carbonate powder with water, get a small syringe and directly squirt a huge lump of that mix on the aptasia, and BAM, there dead, and didn't really affect water quality (bar adding more calcium and buffering potential)
Aptasia X is a product promoted by many, being reef safe etc, however im also a little hesitant adding chemicals to any aquatic system. Let nature do its thing!

Copper banded butterfly's will pick at the aptasia, and I'm pretty sure peppermint shrimp will do the job too
These are the best bet
Bergha I have never seen for sale. Collected a few myself years back, so they are here. Collectors dont know what they are or the use of them for apitasia control so they dont pick them up.
