The Blue Tuxedo Sea Urchin, Mespilia globulus, also known as the Blue Tuxedo Pincushion Urchin, Blue Stripe Pincushion Urchin, Blue Sphere Urchin, and Blue Globe Urchin, is an excessive algae eater and tank cleaner. The Blue Tuxedo Sea Urchin features blue bands in between red, brown, or dark spines. They are best housed in tanks with plenty of algae to eat. Being nocturnal, the Blue Tuxedo Sea Urchin will hide for much of the day to come out at night and search for its prey.  It is reef safe and thrives in tanks with plenty of live rock.

Big nice healthy blue tuxedo. Doing great. Thanks

I love the Urchin! I am surprised with how much it moves in the tank. I have had some algae issues and this urchin is all over it and is eating it up. I am very satisfied with this product.

Voracious algae eater! And stunning colors. This thing will climb everywhere in an established tank with tons of coralline make sure you're ok with him feasting on all algae.

Great addition to the tank. Went to work right away on cleaning. Love the look of the blue tuxedo urchin.

They arrived in good condition and still doing well a week out. Busy eating algae as we speak and beautiful to look at.
