when urchins attack

Hi everyone again I have the culprit of the great wire eating caper it is in fact the urchins that are waiting till no one is watching and then trying to fry all the other fish... sadistic little S.O.B.s They have already started in on the new protien skimmer and powerhead cords I wanted to let anyone else who might have them know so they can take the necessary precautions. I have cut some extra tubing down the middle and slid it over the cords with a little luck the wont eat that too. Thanks for looking and any other ideas would be great. Sue

Hi Sue, long time!!
I guess I have been lucky, none of my 4 have chewed on any cords I have caught them on them before and I just unplugged that item until they got off.
Crazy hobby.
