any one know bout Nudibranchs

I was entertaining the idea of getting some Berghia nudibranch to control my horrible aptasia outbreak that is happening, it seems like the best non-chemical way of dealing with them. Peppermint shrimp and the likes did nothing for me I used to use Aptasia X but now I have an awesome BTA I dont want to harm with the fallout. I was wondering are these specific nudibranch poisenous like some other sea slugs? I also read that they only live 6 mo. max and die out when aptasia is gone. this would be a problem if they are indead poisenous, ive heard storys of entire systems wiped out by one dead sea slug caught in a powerhead.. Scarry stuff!

They will quickly starve and die when their food source is gone. I had no luck with pepps either.
