Here are some pics of my longspined diadema urchin releasing gametes. Sorry for the bad pic quality but I was walking past the tank and just suddenly saw it, grabbed my camera and took some shots, I had no time to change the settings on the camera as it happened so fast.

Is THAT an urchin in your pocket!!??

..Or are you just excited ... ???

Well, well, well

Usually AFTER A STRESSFULL EVENT, THIS happens.

Dean, are you trying to tell us something? :p

It's 24h since your BOLD offer of mating with an urchin, to encourage more posts, from me.

I agree, I think he needs a longspined diadema urchin strategically placed somewhere

Congrats Dean, u got an urchin excited!!! Mine spawn and release eggs frequently, But no babies cruiing around. Unfortunately, urchin larvae are one of the most sensitive and therefore difficult species to raise. They are incredibly sensitive to parameters, toxins etc. Think it was Shimek who did some tests on salt brans using urchin larvae.
