Anything in your tank that likes live food can be a real problem when trying to keep Berghia, maybe even a banned coral shrimp. But as Berghia mature and eat aiptasia, they 'incorporate' the aiptasia's nematocysts into their body, specifically to their back, and become much less likely to be eaten once the predator has tried a few. So getting mature Berghia that have already been fed aiptasia is a good thing. Getting a quantity of them so your predatory animals can eat one or two and decide they don't like them can also be an advantage. If you don't have any animals that eat live food, you shouldn't have any issues.
