I would imagine if you want to kill a sea urchin take it out of the water but you may be able to get a credit at your lfs. Not sure about the other.

I don't want to kill the sea urchin, lol, I want to keep it. It's cool. It's the other stuff I'm talking about. Now I have some other critter crawling around the aquarium. Can you identify it? My son said it looks like a centipede almost.

Prolly not, but I at least need a pic, so I can try.... Nevermind I see the pic.

Not too sure. Sort of looks like a bumble bee shrimp. But don't take my word. Urchins move all the time, like snails.
To kill the aptasia you need a syringe. I got mine at Walgreens for 25cents. Inject the thing with boiling lemon juice. Turn off your power heads while you do it. Wait 15 minutes to turn back on. It is kinda fun to do.

Take the rock out of the water to do the injecting or so it in the water? There are about 5-6 of baring size if that's what it is. I may go back to my lfs and ask them what it is. I'm sure they have plenty more on rock there.

Newest picture with some added dry rock. Still not happy with the design yet. Haven't seen the mantis shrimp anymore. Need to remove it from the tank before I get fish?
