Sea urchins vs Giant Clams

Does anyone have experience keeping toghether sea urchins and Tridacna clams in the same tank?

Are sea urchins safe for the clams?

Sure. I had sever tuxedo urchins in with my clams. They can knock things over though.

Thanks for your input!

Did you ever notice a urchin trying to eat clam's mantle?
