My question is how hard are they to take care of? I have a 60g right now that is mid cycle and I would love to have some a few months down the road.(6 to 8 ) months.

Very easy IMO, they do grow really fast though, I got all of mine small (quarter sized) and they all outgrew my nano. I don't really ever feed them but sometimes when i put sheet algae in for the fish they get some. They really like the stuff though so if you want to make sure they are getting enough food then that is the perfect solution.

Alright thanks. Also do they have any particular light requirements? I have heard that they need very strong light to survive

lol nope no lighting requirements at all. The black long spined urchin actually doesn't like the bright light and comes out usually at night or when the blue dimmer lights are on. The rest are out all day/night.
