In reading through many of the past posts from others, I glean that there is some controversy about what exactly is being sold as Berghias. In response, I would like to share that the beasties I rec'd looked like the ones Carlo referenced when he cited ,"The Reef Aquarium, Volume Two", pg. 426. I'd post a pic, but alas, I can't find these elusive creatures in my tank, now.
They were very pale when they arrived, but became a pale blue with brilliant color on the tips of the cerata. The creatures were shipped from Southern California, which at first blush seems odd for an Atlantic species, but my limited research indicates that captive breeding has been successful.
Hope this helps!

I guess some day some one will send in a photo of these commercial ones so we can have a look at what they really are
