Longspine Urchin, Black

Are these safe for a reef and fish tank with shrimp and crabs?

Thanks,

I have one of these. They grow quickly. Just a few words on what I have experienced with my spiny sea urchin:

-Mine ate the crown of a feather duster....feather duster grew back but just a heads up.

-Mine also finished off a snail that died

-He hurts ya if you run into him. I accidently poked myself with his spines while cleaning the tank.

Other than that, I really like him. He has grown quite quickly, moves fast, and eats a lot of algae.


As above, interesting little guy.
