Hello all!!! I just had something happen in my tank with an puplre sea urchin. So I'm coming to you all so I can get some of your expertise. This is what I came across when I looked into my tank and saw my Urchin was spewing a fine white but thick to a degree stuff from him or her or both??? The only way I can explain it is when you whatch a coal reef and you see there sperm & eggs floting so they can get my fertilized. That is what I saw happneing but to me I only have on urchin. So can anyone tell me what I saw and what is goin on please. So I can get some clearafication into what I think is going on...
:headwally:I am going crazy:headwally: I just would like to know...

Thank you,

I am guessing that it was spawning. But I have little experience with urchins.

I would guess it is spawning too. The urchin doesn't realize he's all by his onsies in there.
