They mainly feed off of algae ?
And they can not adjust to nitrates higher then 10 ppm
They will lose their spines

My urchin looks very weird now after he lost most of his spines

Not to be mean but as stated before in another thread the tank is too young for an anemone. Best for the animal if you could return it before it dies and really makes your water fouled. Best of luck.
