Dr. Mac's Comments:

Tuxedo urchins are excellent algae grazers that eat many types of algae and are great for hair algae control. These are hardy reef animals and do well in most marine aquariums. Add nori once your tank issue is under control to keep them well fed. Take care with acclimating as they are somewhat sensitive to water chemistry changes. Their spines are sharp so be careful in handling.
