Is it a Tuxedo Urchin? I've heard that sea Hares eat it

It’s a pink pincushion urchin.

I have some depressing news. I’m so sad about this, I really loved this fish. My leopard wrasse was attacked by my hermit crab. I saw him attack the fish too. I tried to stop him and I did, but my wrasse had a big cut near his tale I didn’t know if I could’ve done anything. I woke up the next morning and he was dead. I really should’ve moved my hermit over to my other pest tank a long time ago. He’s a little bit bigger than a golf ball. He’s huge for a hermit. I shouldn’t of trusted him. He will get banished to the pest tank.

It was sold to me as a zebra striped hermit crab. It was the size of a dime when I bought it.

I am curious what type of hermit takes down a leopard wrasse. Mine kills small inverts and small gobies 😮 Mines a sassy little bitch 😲

Yea, I just couldn’t believe that the hermit could actually strike out and grab the wrasse. The wrasse is so much faster than all the other fish in my tank. He just doesn’t seem very fast, but then I see him grab him with extreme speed. He always moves slow, but I guess if he really wants something, he’s gonna go after it

I bought him as a zebra striped hermit crab or whatever. It was the size of a blue legged hermit crab when I bought him. I search up zebra striped hermit crabs on google and I can’t find any pictures that look like the hermit I bought.

Ultimately the wrasse should have a much bigger tank. They are incredibly active...mine makes my coris look slow and has grown a fair bit. Can't wait to get mine into my 80g and watch her cruise.

Yea, I can’t wait till I’m able to get a larger tank, preferably 75 or above.

I’m heading to college in half a year, so hopefully I’ll be able to get a larger tank then. My parents are the only people stopping me right now. I may be in a dorm tho for most of college, so I don’t know how big of a tank they will allow. I’ll probably only be able to have a 20 gallon or below if I’m guessing. When I get my own place tho, you already know that I’m about to get a huge tank😂.

It’s also nice when you find a significant other who loves your hobby and wants to contribute. She wants me to get a tank that is installed inside the wall of a house. Preferably right as you walk in😂

Generally 10 gallons max in dorms. Then you hope your roommate doesn't pour beer in it.

Yea, hopefully that doesn’t happen. I would be pissed if my roommate did that.

I haven’t had the time or money lately and it’s starting to come back to haunt me. I haven’t been able to get rid of that aptasia that was in my tank and now it’s multiplied quite a few times. I may get a peppermint shrimp just to get rid of the aptasia, then I can put the shrimp in my pest if he starts to do anything bad.
