    We also have got our supply of Aptasia eating Nudibrach's back in stock, so anybody needing a solution to an aptasia outbreak, without any side effects such as those caused by other treatments must give us a call and we will supply an easy solution.

    Hi guys, we do not sell the Nudibranches, we sell the egg coils, they go for R400 for about 200-400 eggs.

    Eggs come in small plastic containers that have pin holes in them. They are placed on your tank bottom, and weighted down with a rock, they hatch within a week or two.

    Nick, you could try. The problem with introducing a adult nudibranch is that the fish might catch a glimpse of it and eat it. They are venomous and then the fish will spit it out. Eggs are the best option, there is a higher success rate than having an adult. Also, these guys are very secretive, as are all Nudibranchs, and because they eat aiptasia and use their nematocysts in for protection, they are very unpalatable. In the fish trade, these guys are very expensive to sell as adults.

    Hi.

    Do you take the lid of when you place it under the rocks ? Or do they crawl out of the pin holes ?
