I saw my tuxedo sea urchin poop today!!

Maybe this seems like a strange post, but I did see him poop! So wild. Out of this tiny, tiny hole comes a series of pink (could have been the blue lighting, but looked pink LOL), small little pellets. At first the fish went for them, thinking it was food, but left them alone. I do have lots of coraline algae he must be eating, so pink seems like a reasonable color So TINY!!! Incredible life in my SW tank.

Lovin' it!

Your thread title made me laugh out loud :) As for urchin poop - well you don't see that every day do you?
GwenInNM and fish monger like this.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

I thought of getting my phone for a pic, but figured by the time I got it he'd be done. I could have done it, knowing now that the itsy, bitsy round pink poops kept coming, and I would have had time. Next time, I'll get a picture. If there is a next time It looked like a round candy dispenser, with small bits of treats coming out one by one!

Yep, I must admit, not as "rare" to see as I thought. Looked at him today, briefly and he was pooping! A little poop machine!
