    New Long-spined Urchin ( Diadema antillarum)

    New Long-spined Urchin ( Diadema antillarum) arrives in about 20 mins.

    I'll post pics of the little guy maybe later tonight or tomorrow.

    I was going to let him sit in the bag in the tank for 3 hours 1 hours close and 2 hours dripping in new tank water

    Aaron in Aqua Creations in Halifax order two extra ones in if anyone in the Halifax area is looking for one. 39.99+taxes

    it only takes around 15 min for it to get to the right temperature. after that you can start dripping.
    IMO

    I not sure guys. Isn't there that whole coefficient laws of heat transfer? I always thought it depended on the original temperature of the bagged water then the delta between the two temperatures.

    I held the bag in the current to allow it to fill up then I gently tipped the bag towards the live rock. It took about 10 minutes to allow him to slowly slide out.
