Given time I think his instincts will kick in.. like you said he is young. Hopefully the time he holds will continue to ram up. Just feed em real good til he is holding again.

All previous tanks retired.... New project planning in progress....

1oz. of research will save 1/2 this board from wrist and joint issues due to retyping this information multiple times.

I wonder where I could get a camera from...

You're the type of man who passes by sports illustrated and grabs encyclopedia brittanica when you take a dump, huh?

Did someone mention Alto ???
Im GAGA for Alto !!

I'd give you a hug but you might stab me

Long spine urchins have really interesting poop. That is all.

It's not weird at all. I was actually watching it poop :lol: I'll try to get a vid next time I see it. You know the eye looking thing on the top of them? That's the butt. They poop pellets colored whatever they're eating (I happen to be giving him red macro algae) and it comes out like a geyser. Now let your imagination run wild

Aww glad you're think of me :)

It's pretty weird looking. Also, evolution has failed this species. You can imagine what goes wrong when your butt is on top of you.

No, I don't. I've never liked pajamas.

My male is now holding his 3rd clutch of eggs (he only waited 2 weeks after releasing the last batch before taking this batch) so I've been looking around for advice and discovered marinebreeders.org. Have you checked them out alto?

I am not actively trying to breed so my adults are in a tank with other fish and the urchin provides some protection and a good place for me to collect the babies. In the QT tank I have the toothpick urchin so the babies have a place to hang out. I should have used clay like you did.

I'm so jealous of your guys' babies! I will definitely be making fake urchins when I get babies, but for now I kinda like Mr. spikey

Don't worry, he's been eating 4-5 times a day for the last week. If he doesn't hold next time, it won't be because of a lack of food!

Excellent. How long are you going to fatten him up until you reintroduce him to his lady friend?

He's with his lady friend right now. Since he hasn't held more than a few days at a time, I didn't think it would be necessary to separate them yet. She actually should be ready to spawn sometime in the next few days fingerscrossed
