how do i capture and move an urchin
i'll start by saying ive got a purple urchin that came as a hitchhiker on my live rock. now, ive been toying with the idea of re-aquascaping so my rock doesnt just look like a pile of rocks. but i cant do this with the urchin in the tank.
how do i catch the urchin without breaking off a good number of the spines? all i want to do is move him to my QT, do some construction work in the tank, and move him back to the main tank. probably a weekend job, but definately too much activity in the tank to not hurt him if i kept him in there during all the work.
