View Full Version : Urchin question

I got a full grown urchin with my package, but I also had a baby urchin hitch hiker, which has grown to full size in last few months.

I'm worried that a 20g isn't enough food for two urchins. Should I think about re-homing one?

You had better hope they don't lay eggs, then you'll really be in a bind!

If it seems to much, trade one to LFS. I think I counted 9 in my 240. The only thing I don't like about them is they can pry a freshly glued frag.

Ended up moving one as I caught him/her munching on a coral. I'm guessing there just isn't enough algae to keep two well fed in this tank, so it just started eating whatever it could. I probably should have been supplementing their feeding somehow. Ah well. Live and learn.
