Tuxedo Urchin*

Species Availability:   No stock

The Tuxedo Urchin is a small urchin that is suitable for nano tanks. It will consume hair algae and some species of turf and complex algae. The Tuxedo Urchin grows to about 2.5 inches in diameter. Because of its small size it less likely to knock over objects in the aquarium than other urchin, and is suitable for nano aquariums. They like to wear loose objects, (including snails and hermits), as camouflage. Putting empty shells on them to wear reduces their tendency to pick up live snails. They are not as hardy as other urchins, and require a mature tank that is healthy and stable. 

This species requires UPS Next Day Air and does not qualify for free shipping.
