Has anyone had these reproduce on them?? I think I have.
I had 3 of these urchins as hitchhickers on LR
that I got back in April. The largest was about the size of a quarter, the other two smaller and smaller again (kids named them small, medium and large). I recently found 3 new very small urchins. I am trying to figure out if they reproduced or if these other three were there all along and just too small to notice. The interesting thing is that the 3 new ones all appeared on the same small chuck of LR
out of over 80 lbs, which leads me to think they were born there vs hiding the whole time.
