The Hairy Pincushion Urchin, Tripneustes gratilla also known as the Sea Egg, and the Priest-hat Urchin comes in a wide variety of colors including white, black, purple and red. These urchins commonly have five or ten of white or red spines used for protection. In addition to the spines this urchin will cover itself with rocks, shells, shells, or algae for camouflage. It is preferable to house this urchin in an aquarium with live rock so that it can graze on algae. They are sensitive to copper medications. In systems with poor water quality they will shed its spins.
