    I put my two small urchins back in the DT, I think they excellent cuc, but I am a bit worried about their spikes pricking the anemones.

    Anyone else forsee a problem, and are they compatable?

    i don't like to keep urchins in my display tank, as i think they might harm my softies and possibly also an anemone. i would personally not that the risk

    Neither have I, I had a huge black long spined diadema urchin in 2 of my old tanks and can't say that I noticed any damage caused.

    I have a long spine and 4 nemmies and with no ill effect. You can have a look at my softies and corals they are equally happy.
