Doh! Sorry about the urchin
More and more I hear about carpet anemones doing something bad, makes me want to rethink getting one.

Well they will eat what ever comes along their path right?

I suppose the urchin fell pray to the anenome's sting.

well, there is an update to this story...

Last night we went to town, came back pretty late. As I was feeding fish, I saw the urchin, out and about, not seemed any worse for the experience. I guess the anemone decided he didnt like the flavor of a pencil urchin
