    Hi All,

    I've had the pin urchin for over a month and over the last couple days it has been losing its spines, I don't see anything eating them, but I also don't see them coming off.....do urchins molt or anything? I got it to hit hair algae, which it seems to ignore....maybe it is starving to death?

    Thanks,

    Josh

    Losing spines isn't good. IIRC they're pretty sensitive to water quality. How're your parameters?
