    Husband uses to have an urchin, but urchin and pistol shrimp do not mix, urchin would drop frags and pistol would bury them.
    Reading this sort of makes me want one for my tank though...lol

    A couple more well hidden ones. The puffer has been pecking at the purple urchins so they have added more armor.
