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!

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!

Hah, that's awesome! Good job Mr. Urchin!
I'm sure the non-fish people would not appreciate the joy of this moment! :p

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!
