Hi All, I have a few questions for the aquarium and sea urchin enthusiasts on this forum: Are locally sourced sea urchins easy to find in SA aquarium shops? What types do you normally find? I am looking for long-spined sea urchins (diadematoids) like Diadema setosum, Diadema savignyi, and the banded sea urchin Echinothrix calamaris. As well as pencil urchins like Prionocidaris pistillaris, Plococidaris verticillata and Eucidaris metularia. Ultimately I would need to find a local source who could ship these to the US for me during the time when they have gametes. Thanks for taking the time to respond to my post. Appreciate it!
