Diadema eats CC stars


Recommended Posts

well i have a diadema and a harlequin shrimp in my nano tank, when i bought a CC star to feed the harlequin the diadema starting eating it as well, i found this to be very strange since most sources depict them to be strict herbivores. well upon further reading Nilsen and Fossa list the diademas as NOT reef safe- will eat sponges, bryozoans, and corals. as a matter of fact they list almost all urchins as not reef safe, what gives? its kinda funny though cause my harlequin sure gets pissed when the urchin comes by for a snack. anyone else have this kind of experience with a diadema or other urchin?
