    Using my gift card I won at the biz meeting, I picked up this beauty last night from New Wave Aquaria. [​IMG]

    Beauty. I have never had one of those in my almost 30 years of saltwater. I have always been worried they will knock over corals or move stuff around. From what I have read they are great algae eaters. I am going to have to give one a try. I sure like the beautiful colors on yours. Do you know what part of the world he was sourced from?

    I'm not sure. Indo Pacific I think? The owner at new Wave said they are reef safe, aren't as prone to picking things up (but still can/will like any urchin), and only gets to about 2-3". Good algae eater and beautiful. A little more than I was planning to pay for an urchin ($60) but I couldn't be happier. They have one more... or did at the end of the night last night.
