    Ok, since Nick hasn't had any luck getting them (thanks for trying Nick), I think I'm going to go ahead and organize a group order this week.   So... If you need any Berghia's (AKA aptasia eating machines), read below:

    GROUP ORDER INFO

    Here's where I will be ordering from:
    Salty Underground
    http://www.saltyunderground.com/
    I will be ordering 6 adults myself, so if we can get 6 more total, we will quailify for a small shipping upgrade and free box charge.  
    On top of that, they have a shipping sale going on right now, so we should end up getting a pretty good deal.
    Shipping will be split up based on order total, so if you're part of the order makes 50% you will pay %50 of the shipping.   The total shipping charge for the whole order should be around $36, maybe a bit more if we don't order at least 12 total.
    Anyone who wants to order, please PM me on this site no later than tuesday.   I would prefer that everyone PayPal me for their part of the order no later than wednesday night.   I may be willing to float one or two people until they pick up their part of the order, but don't count on it.   Plan on Paying in advance.
    Last but not least, I will be placing this order on Thursday morning (Jan 17th.).    I will place the order with FedEx priority overnight so it will arive at my office friday morning.    We have a tank at my office, so I can float the stuff in the sump while I'm at work.
    If you plan to be a part of this order, please plan on picking your stuff up either Friday night (I live in Marion) or Saturday afternoon during the GIRS Kickoff meeting.
    For detailed information on Berghia's  read Calfo's article here:

    I would like to get some. I need to see if they are safe with a six line wrasse in the tank.
    Wesly, I would buy at least 2 or 3 so they breed and lay eggs.

    I would like 3 of the Berghia. Please PM me your paypal address.
    I have enough aptasia in my tank and refugium where I think I can breed them and sell them to anyone in the Des Moines area who wants them.
    I would reccommend everyone who gets them to read the articles in the link that was posted. Last time I tried this, I put four in my tank and they all dissappeared and my aptaisa is still here. So im going to keep the breeding pair in a seperate container and grow out the young and put them in the tank this time.
    Thanks,
    Chris

    Hello, i didnt see any prices for the nudi's could i ask how much they are a piece?
    All the info you need is at the site we are ordering from:  http://www.saltyunderground.com/
    I'd post it here, but there are a couple of different options.
    By the way everyone, I spoke to someone at SaltyUnderground today and not only do they have enough to fill our order, they said the ones they have right now are of a very nice size.    And after talking with them, there's going to be a slight change of plans.   They encouraged me to do the order on friday and have it delivered via FedEx on saturday morning, so I'm going to do that and pick it up from FedEx myself before the meeting.   That should help ensure that we dont' have any losses (not that I think it would really be a problem).

    Ok, here's what I have so far:

    JB (That's Me!) - 6 Adults
    Billy - 2 Adults
    Jeff Wagner - 2 Adults
    Tibbs - 3 Adults
    Wesley - 2 Adults

    I'm still need a final conformation from Hopper75 for 2 adults.

    So we have a grand total of 15 (or possibly 17 Adults)

    I'm going to get the ball rolling on this tomorrow morning and I should have totals for everyone tomorrow. I will PM totals and my PayPal address as soon as I have them available.

    If anyone on the list is NOT in for the order, please speak up ASAP.

    Quick Update:

    Unless I am calculating something wrong, it looks like the worst case for shipping is $2.50 per adult nudi.

    So in other words we are looking at probably less than $17.50 per adult nudi with shipping included.

    Ok, the order has been placed and everyone should have a PM with their totals.

    We ordered 15 adults total and the shipping came to exactly $30 which made the Berghia's exactly $17 each.

    I will be picking up the order from FedEx as early as possible on saturday. They are all coming in the same bag, so I'm going to have to take them home and acclimate them in more water before repackaging them for each person who ordered. The fine folks at SaltyUnderground are going to include detailed instructions on how to get this done and they stressed that if any of us have questions about acclimation, etc. we should not hesitate to give them a call (Lisa there is very nice & helpful).

    So, don't forget to bring some type of insulated container when you come to the meeting so you will have a place to keep them until you can get them back in your tank.

    Thanks everyone.

    LOL, I put a couple of aptasia in the container that I have my nudi's in and they didn't last long.

    Gentlemen, I think we have our cure for aptasia...

    Now to get them to multiply so I can put some in my display tank...
