Mmmm I'd say two, maybe three? Just add some extra sheet algae (elastic it to a rock or something) every once in awhile to make sure they aren't starving.

Just a note urchins teeth can wreck acrylic aquariums and the short spined ones like tuxedo, pincushion, priest-hat, ect like to carry items around on their backs to disguise themselves. They might pick up the odd coral, usually just rocks and shells though.

They sometimes will attach coral and when I had them, they also constantly were knocking down rocks. Great detritus cleaner though.
