    Yes I'm looking for AIptasia as I have some berghia nudibranchs I'm breeding. I've already fed my current ones all the aipts that I have but they have seen created a couple of egg masses and need to feed the babies when they hatch.

    Looking for local pick up in the penninsula SF side near airport.

    Thanks,
    Charles-

    California Reef always have some on hand for their Peppermints. Maybe see if you can buy some off them?

    If anyone has more please let me know. Looking for folks local if possible (Peninsula/SF).

    Went to CRC to see what they had, bought some coral and they gave me a rock with a couple large aiptasia. The berghia is almost done with those already lol.

    Checking if anyone has more Aiptasia in rubble rock they want to get ride off? Some of the egg masses I had hatched and the babies are growing and voracious. Will need to get a new batch of Aiptasia's or they starve if no more food within 5 days. Thanks. Here's a shot of them gang attacking aiptasia.

    I got some from them before. But some of their frags i bought as well had a bunch of red planaria.

    Lucky I caught those during dips.

    Planeria is easy enough to deal with though with flatworm exit, now other types of flatworms... not so much.

    The dip usually gets all red planaria for me.

    I dip all frags I get doesnt matter if it's from a local fish store, WWC, battle corals, a fellow reefer, john poletti. All get dipped. I even try to remove it from the frag plug or break up the frag plug.
