Hi! I’m about to get this beautiful yellow and purple pincushion urchin. He’s been brought in to my local aquarium shop for me from someone who can’t keep him. He’s been in quarantine and I also left him there a few days to rest before I move him yet again to his new home. The two times I saw him there this past week he has had NOTHING on him like shells or snails or anything. He hasn’t, to my knowledge, collected anything since coming in to the place even though there’s plenty for him to pick up. Is that ok? Is it *normal* for this type of urchin to just not pick up stuff? He’s beautiful and looks otherwise healthy as far as I can tell but I don’t know if I should be concerned about his lack of collecting. I’m afraid to get him and put him into my tank if he’s not doing well.
