Ya mine tended to stay off the glass as much as he could. But he will be fine. Although if you see him goin in the sand......... your gonna have a dead urchin.... I know from experience. But sounds like you have very healthy urchin that won't be dying soon

I had put him on the sand to move something he was on so never put in the sand.
