I have 6 black/purple urchins and multiple corals. No issues other than a lack of complete coralline coverage on my rocks.

I'm encouraged, thanks all...
But how do you feed these urchins? I would gladly target -feed them some seaweed if I could figure a good method!

You can wedge some nori/seaweed sheets between the rockwork, or use a veggie clip to hang some in there but, I don't think it's necessary to feed it.

They climb the glass to get to the nori/seaweed on my clip. Anything the Tangs dont eat (quickly) will be gone shortly.

Unless you starve the poor things I think you're fine
OK, this all sounds good. Thanks to all. Am I starving my urchins by not target-feeding them? How would I go about target-feeding an urchin, which I would be glad to do if it would help.

Thanks, Fluff...
If I wedge the nori in the rocks, the tang and crabs get it before the urchin has a chance!!

They graze and IMO it would not be possible to stap them for doing so.
