Sand Dollar Urchin

Do you guys have any experience with them? Are they easy to keep and good send sifters? My LFS says Yes but i don't trust them. Thanks.

I did some research a while ago. From what I could find they don't do well at all in captivity as they need a large deep sand bed. Or maybe were doing some thing wrong. IMO Until someone figures what they need really these creatures should stay in the wild.

Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.
