I just tried to hold a piece of nori on a clip next to an urchin and he walked in the other direction (rather quickly, too!) Have I been insulted? Is there a way to target feed these guys?

I have 6 that hitch hiked on my LR. The only negative I can say about them is that they are mini bulldozers and will knock over small frags, so I had to make sure all my frags were attached to larger rocks. The second bad thing is that I barely have any coralline algae. They eat it all and eat it fast. I am going to give a couple to some local reef friends in trade for frags. Six is too many for a 120 IMO.

55 Gal FOWLR
105 lbs Live rock from LR.com
2 Yellow Tail Damsels
2 Green Chromis
1 Emerald Crab
3 Peppermint Shrimp
4 Scarlet Hermit Crabs
1 Blue Knuckle Hermit Crab
1 Large Turbo Snail
Hitchhickers: 3 Purple sea urchins, lots of rock crabs, pistol shrimp, brittle stars, snails, worms, etc.
