Got a great box of Kaelini Tonga LR from a fellow reef central member. On one of the rocks was this...


Looks like some kind of sea urchin... Is it good or bad? Also this is a new tank and this LR is the first thing I have added to it so it is not cycled. Any advice on how to try and keep him alive?

Can't tell from the pick can you put it in water and take another pick.

Are there any spines around the sea urchin b/c I think they can lose their spines when stressed. Here's a pic http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Zeeegel3.jpg

You know what... in the first pic, of the urchin is in the box still, you can see lots of little "things" around it. Those were probably the spines.
