Today, on my LFS's website, I noticed that they got some urchins in, and I had been wanting one for a long time. The urchin was advertised as a Electric Blue Urchin (also available in red). I then called the store, asked for the price (39.99), and and put the urchin on hold. Although the price was pretty high, they said it was definitely worth it. They told me that it was from Tonga and was more flat than completely round. Does anyone know exactly what kind of urchin this is? And do you have any pictures? Also, think this is worth the 40 bucks? Thanks!

Sounds like they are describing a tuxedo urchin as they come in blue and red. They are the 'reef safe' urchin, but be warned that they will disguise themselves in whatever is around the tank. This can range from polyps to your thermometer.
