Purple, white, red, blue, or green round body covered with rows of short spines, the pincushion urchin grows to 10cm (4in) and will often pick up rubble and shells.
Florida pin cushions are great green grazers. These nocturnal creatures will scavenge live rock and aquarium glass eating algae. They pick up shells and debris as sun protection, and some tank owners 3D print little hats for them to wear instead! Keep your pincushion happy with plenty of live rock.
Safe & Great For Tanks!
