pink pin urchin
He arived alive, bag was almost out of water, he is doing great in tank. He likes to go where ever mu snow flake eel is. I'm happy.

Pink Urchin
This guy is by far super fun to watch, he moves around and you can see his millions of tentacles reaching around touching things... He will pick up alot of things, and I mean... ALOT of things as he travels around. Be warned, he will eat your Coraline algae on rocks
Ryan of Anchorage, AK
Worth it
This Urchin is AWESOME! It's my first one and I love it. When it came in, it was the size of a baseball and the thing is fun to watch. picks up random things and holds on to them while traveling everywhere in the tank. My floating thermometer is its favorite. HA great Urchin

Pink Pin Cushion Urchin
I have had mine for about two weeks now. It arrived a live in great condition. It was almost the size of a tennis ball. The urchin is all over my tank. It does like the seaweed in the tank.

Pink Pin urchin
Arrived DOA- popped the plastic bag during transport. It was good sized and was a nice looking urchin. Very disappointed about the death but R2G completely refunded the purchase without any hassle.

Purple urchin
This guy is a must. Arrived healthly and about the size of a golf ball. He was all over my tank after acclimation. It's been 3 weeks and the guy is happy as can be. I love reefs2go and am addicted to their site. Everything arrives great and the communication with them is great. If anyone is curious about ordering online. No worries with these guys.

AND YOU GUYS ARE HONEST FAIR PRICED TAKE TIME IN QUALITY OF WHAT YOU SELL ...
Vicki of Ft. Myers, Florida
Pin Cushion Urchin
This thing is so funny. Is fun to watch as it makes it's way around the tank. He grabs everything and sticks it to itself on it's journey so sometimes you have to plug some snails or hermits off of it (it doesn't hurt them, just carries them around). If you don't have your frags glued down, he will take those too! Good cleaner and very entertaining!

Urchins
I brought my urchins several months ago and they are doing fine and getting bigger. i will always buy from you guys. thanks
Patricia of Orlando
Great size
I have purchased two of these from reefs2go. One came and he was just a little smaller than a golf ball. He is doing great. I decided to order another and he is the size of a SOFTBALL. He is defintely on steroids ;o) They are both doing great....have had the smaller one for about 4 months and the big one for two months. I find them to be sturdier than other types that I have had.

Pink Pin Cushion Urchin
This is the first saltwater livestock review that I have done but had to get on here and say that the pink pin cushion urchin is very nice size, healthy and fun to watch. It travels everywhere in my tank and has been carrying three empty shells on it's back for 3 days now. An A+!

Pink Pin Cushion Urchin
When I received my order of Pink Pin Cushion Urchins I couldn'g believe how large they were and healthy. I've had them for 3 weeks now and all still alive. I have ordered urchins from other companies and have never received ones this large and healthy. Usual a few die during shipping. REEFS2GO Has the BEST URCHINS!!!!!!
