    Check ammonia level, they are very sensitive to ammonia.

    Temp could also have an effect but in my case my tank is stable a 26.5C (due to aircons in the house).

    Sorry to revive this thread, I'm curious as to whether one can put an urchin shell in the tank? Like those green ones you sometimes find on the beach?
