Naso tang gets annoyed

Posted 02/18/2011 at 12:17 PM by sacremon

A little over a week ago, I got in an Astropyga radiata. Common names are something like Radiating Urchin or Long Spine Blue Spot urchin (Live Aquaria seems to prefer the latter). They are strikingly colored, reputedly venomous and are fairly active during the day. It has been wandering all over the tank, and it appears to be at least sampling some of the algae that has taken over much of the rock and sand. Yesterday, however, it discovered the rock to which I tie nori to feed the two tangs...

Radiata eating frozen food

Posted 01/11/2011 at 04:53 AM by sacremon
