Urchins and Skimmers.

Is the Remora the quietest of the small skimmers? The tank is sort of in the dining room area, which is why I'm asking.. =)

Also, what urchins are similar to the blue tuxedo (Mespila globulus) as far as care requirements go (or lack of )? I saw some on Aquabid the other day called purple pincushion urchins, but they didn't give a scientific name..

Do I have to worry about urchins "picking up" my clean-up crew? I saw a picture of one carrying around a snail shell.

No worries with the Urchins, I have 2 pincushions (see gallery for my purple) a longspine and a Blue Tux. All are self sufficient for the most part and do not bother a thing. Their "pick up" habit is quite comical at times. They think they are hiding.

LOL, yeah, I saw yours with the nori clip. That's hilarious!

I really like tuxes, but I was just wondering about the other ones too. Thanks for the help on that.

Yeah. I meant "yours" like "your urchin," not "your tux."
