    I got two of these from Jungle Aquatics on Sunday. They have super thin spines, a flattened body and a sting like a bee.

    Depends on where in the world they do come from.

    This one look similar to our local Bicoloured urchin, Salmacis bicolor
    Although this one does look a bit more flatten in overall shape.

    Thanks @RiaanP . I don't know where they got them from but @bryan said they imported them as Centrstephanus longispinus.
