Are you planning to keep corals? I heard they're not coral friendly. They're pretty cool though.

Most urchins eat coraline algae once their food supply of regular algae is gone.

If you think he is going for the coraline, you could put some nori to feed him that is if you don't want him eating the coraline

I've had one for 7 months. He occasionally knocks a coral off a rock but other than that he just cruses around eating. I did see him eat a patch of coraline but it was back in days. I like mine, they're just neet looking...
