Extreme blues does not really display this fish the best. Although you would think with the red white and blue they would all pop. The subtle beauties in the color are lost under full Windex mode. My lights are on the ramp down right now and I wasn't going to mess with the settings.

Same with my dude. But then I find full windex awful.

here’s what I’m going with as far as lighting. No windex here.

with my guy the red shows up during the “morning” and “evening” presets on the fluval. Both have something like 35% blue 17% cyan, 14% purple, 9% cool white. And something like 3% red.

and this is on the MIGHTY fluval marine 2.0.

and no. I didn’t have to share my t5 lighting plan. But I’m excited. So there ya go

They are tough. If they are tucked away, you'd pull out spines. Once he's in the open, no big deal. Treat him like a glued down coral frag.


I love urchins. If you cement your rock scape well, should be safe.
Ehhh possibly. The pencil I had chewed through rock. They're technically "rock boring urchins" and he literally ate through a chunk of rock & a torch base. Get a different kind of urchin imo

yeah. I went to check on things with lights off. Urchin had gone back in its hole and I could see it had bored into the rock surrounding the hole.

I’m going to get it out. Just don’t know how to lure it out of the hole far enough I can nab it. I’ll just get a small tuxedo instead

Try to lure him out with nori banded to a small piece of rubble rock maybe?

good idea. He’s taken up residents at the top of a rock so figuring out how to rig this should be fun.

Could I have some help telling what gender it is? Thanks
I've been told I'm not allowed to assume. I have to ask its pronouns, whatever that is.
