    I noticed my Pencil Urchin was sitting on top of where I have some Mushrooms. I got some baby mushrooms there, 1 that was a morph between some, and they are gone. Anyone have an issue with this?

    Pencil urchins are known to eat corals sometimes.

    Never a problem until I was feeding my fish today. Not much algae in the tank. Might have to try feeding him a piece of nori.

    Those shrooms could become a pest. Once they take over, they take over..
