    Discovered this little guy in my tank last night. Never seen it before. Did not know exactly what it was but Rhyn and some other fellow mariners helped me identify it. Sputnik pencil urchin :thumbup:

    Thank you, quite chuffed with it. I've got no idea. I bought a rather large rock from Rhyn the other day (in that rock I saw it last night), I presume from there cause its the first time Ive seen it and my other LR I've had for some time now.

    Nice, they often come in on live rock as hitchhikers, I've had a few, they have a knack of being able to really tightly wedge themselves into gaps in the rock so are extremely difficult to get out, cool little guys though. :)

    a bit off topic ... has anyone ever eaten a sea urchin ? I'm asking cos I was watching bizarre foods america the other day and it appears that they are quite a hit in the States ... almost like eating oysters.
