I ordered one of these for my 30 gallon reef tank. Great little urchin, healthy and pretty, and doesn't knock things over. It's very cool to watch the little tube feet move! Healthy and acclimated well, and I'm very pleased with this purchase.

This is my second time ordered through r2g and the experience is still great. Everything arrived alive. My tuxedo urchin is living and moving. In fact, everything I've ordered so far is doing well. Another suggestion is a way for members to save cart.
