One thing we totally love about the aquarium hobby/industry is how obsessive some people can be about one small aspect of marine aquatics, and then how they can take that passion to the next level by publishing a book on a single species. We already have texts dealing exclusively with orchid dottybacks, peppermint shrimp, pygmy seahorses and now the aiptasia-eating Berghia nudibranch.
Berghia nudibranchs are now known to be Aeolidiella stephanieae, the aquarium hobby hasn’t stopped calling them just ‘berghias’. The new book Breeding Berghia Nudibranch by Dene Banger is a complete hand book on everything you need to know to successfully keep and grow Berghias for fun and to supply the hobby’s demand for a biological weapon against the dreaded Aiptasia pest anemones. The new Breghia book is available now from Premium Aquatics for just twenty bucks ($19.99) and if you’ve got a soft spot for these soft-bodied mollusc, this affordable book is right up your alley.
