Peppermint Shrimp:
Crush two tbs minced mint leaves (no stems) with the juice of two limes, two tbs of sugar and a shot of light rum. Marinade eight cleaned jumbo shrimp for two hours in fridge or overnight (overnight is best). Skewer and salt shrimp. Broil or grill over medium high heat until shrimp become opaque (apx. two and a half min per side). Serve with black beans cooked with garlic, green onions, bacon and topped with a slice of lime.

I hope it just pooped!!!
i removed it from the bag and rinsed it in tank water that i removed and placed in a bucket and then placed the urchin in the tank. I think i will leave my carbon in one more day. this thing can be poisoness to its room mates if not carefull, right?

Not that I'm aware of, unless it sticks them with spines. It sounds like it pooped, or possibly released sperm.

i was under the impression that urchins can ooze some type of toxic substance. especially when dead

sperm!!! i got it on my hands!!!
i wonder if an urchin can release sperm as some type of defense mechanism?

sperm makes more sense than poop. im sure that i would have read that an urchin totaly clouds the water every time it poops. i searched around for some explanation and could find none.

Thanks Kevin!

By the way, thanks for Christmas e-card, nice picture.
