    urchins are weird, the orange eye looking thing is there butt but its on top, there mouth of course is on the bottom were they grind the corraline down. I did a search on RC and its spawning for sure.

    I'll say it again EWWWW

    Talking about corraline, I would like to buy some from you(John) if possible at the next MASO. Since the urchins have gone to a bigger place, mine is really taking off and adding different corraline it might help speed it along.

    Cool

    very neat creature. DARK, I honestly wouldn't take water from anyone elses tank. You never know whats going on in there systems and they might not either. I used to think sharing a cup of sandbed was okay but no longer. Theres just to much stuff out there and I'd hate to be responsible for someone elses tank. Now that you don't have 2! urchins in your tank it should bounce back.
