My sea urchin looks like he's eating a snail?

Is this possible I just got a shipment of snails and now it looks like my sea urchin is eating one. Is this at all possible? My hermits are harassing them too. I know some of them are dead but I put them in there until I could figure out which ones are alive and which ones are dead. I now looks like I have a snail farm. I'm a little concerned I have too many.

10 or 11 margarita snails (looks like tops)
20 narssius sp? black snails

Urrrg I have snails everywhere.

Take it out and dump it in your sump, or if you don't have a sump take it to your lfs first thing in the morning.

Or let it eat the turbo and go buy another...
They don't hunt them... IT'll be a few weeks apart that they find eachother... I'd keep em both !

Ya, every couple of weeks is not to bad. The snails cost about 1.00. My tank looks like a snail farm right now anyway.
