I just learned from another forum that those "feelers" or "tenticles" on my Sea Urchin are really "Eyes"...how neat is that!!!! That would mean that my urchin has more eyes then a spider...Hahahaha

It came in with my live rock and was the size of an eraser tip. When it got to big and started to knock things over I put it in my Misc. Tank.
Yes he travels all over that tank. The seaweed that I fed him is called "Wakame" and can be found in the Asian Section of most Supermarkets.
