Blue tuxedo urchin and my ricordea

Ok, so i am just sitting at my desk and happen to look over at my tank and i see my blue tux urchin dragging my new ricordea around! He picks up alot of stuff but has never tried a coral. The ricordea hasnt had much time to settle in so it isnt attatched to anything, is there anything i can do to get it to anchor down?

Thanks

I would just pull him off and replace him where you want him. These Urchins will pick anything up (nothing personal) to hide themselves. he won't hurt it.
