Description

The Tuxedo Sea Urchin is recognizable by its velvety brilliant blue inner surface covered by straight rows of soft gray and brown spines. Fragments of sand or rock are carried in their spines and used as camouflage from predators.

 

Only ranging around 3 inches in diameter, these beautiful sea creatures will mill around at night scouting for algae and small organisms to eat. Have plenty of well-established live rock and thick sandy substrate. Maintain proper salinity and consistent water temperatures. More than one can be housed in larger tanks.

 

Starfish and urchins will feed on waste, small organisms, invertebrates and algae in the rock and substrate. Also supplement their diet with small minced meaty foods such as clams, squid and shrimp.
