    Hi PPL

    Ive got a n interesting Q for my fellow reefers.
    And some cool pics.

    Ive got a perpule urchin and my wife saw it extruding something looking like eggs.
    It seams like small white balls poping out like poop. haha

    So she went onto the net and search on it.
    She saw that the female lays the eggs and the male comes around and furtelizes the eggs.

    How does this work and what do i do?

    I have two other urchins currently in the tank. One smaler black one in the display and about the same size as the purple one in the sump.

    Do i put the biger one into the display to see if one of the other will firtelize the eggs if it even are eggs.

    Heres some pics.
