Tuxedo Urchins for Sale:

Enhance your marine aquarium with the striking and beneficial Tuxedo Urchin, available at YoCamron’s Aquatics both as aquacultured and wild-caught specimens. Known for their distinctive black and blue, or sometimes red, banded appearance, Tuxedo Urchins are not only visually appealing but also serve as an excellent natural cleanup crew for your tank.

Care Requirements:
- Aquarium Size: Suitable for tanks as small as 30 gallons.
- Water Conditions: Thrive in stable marine environments with temperatures between 72-78°F, a pH of 8.1-8.4, and specific gravity of 1.023-1.025.
- Tank Setup: Provide a rocky setup with ample hiding spots and enough room to graze. They are sensitive to high levels of nitrates and copper-based medications, so ensure water quality is meticulously maintained.

Feeding Needs:
- Diet: Tuxedo Urchins are primarily herbivores, feeding on algae growth within the aquarium. Supplement their diet with dried seaweed or prepared algae sheets if natural algae levels are low.
- Feeding Schedule: Ensure constant access to algae. Supplemental feedings of seaweed can be given two to three times a week, attached to rocks or clips in the tank.

Tuxedo Urchins are known for their hardiness and low maintenance, making them ideal for both novice and experienced aquarists. They help control algae growth and keep your tank surfaces clean, which contributes to the overall health and aesthetic of your marine environment.

Whether you prefer aquacultured individuals accustomed to aquarium life or the wild-caught variety, YoCamron’s Aquatics provides top-quality Tuxedo Urchins. Each comes fully quarantined to ensure they are healthy and ready to join your aquarium community. Enjoy the dual benefits of natural beauty and tank maintenance with these fascinating marine creatures.
