The Black Longspine Urchin is a very interesting addition to any aquarium.
It has long, thin black spines that extend from its body, and rows of blue spots in a symetrical design across its body.
The anus of the long spine urchin looks like an eye on the top of the body, with a bright orange ring in the center.
While the body itself is usually only about 2 to 3 inches in diameter, the spines can grow three to four times this length.
During the day, urchins will find a corner or hiding spot to rest.
At night, they will roam about the tank searching for food and algae on the substrate, rockwork, and glass.

The urchin is best kept in an aquarium where it will have ample supplies of algae to eat.
