Scarce as gold

Could someone please explain to me why the Berghia Nudibranch snail is so hard to obtain.I dont like to use chemicals in my tanks,therefore to me this is a perfect solution. In ten years of keeping SW fish I never saw a tank totally without aiptasia , you would think that the demand for this natural born killer would be high thus creating a large supply. Yet I cant seem to source a supply. Being in Canada complicates the issue, however even large suppliers in the states seem to be behind .Are these critters hard to breed or keep?

Yes, hard to keep and tedious to breed.

It's probably because they dine on aiptastia only and when there is none left they starve.
Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!
