Okay note to self
I was wondering if they would go around or over corals
they will go around established ones. But the tiny frags...they just don’t have enough stingers to hurt the big boys. The urchins will Not put their raw exposed under body on nematocysts. No one wants to willingly get stung... but the longer the spines the more area they can push clear.
