Pencil urchins graze primarily on algae so can be a useful tank choice.Urchins of this genus are also likely to eat coraline algae and sponges.
The banded pencil urchin with it's predominantly reddish colouration is quite pleasing to look at compared to some of it's close relatives.
Be careful of lose rocks that urchins may dislodge causing accidental damage to the tank or corals, in my experience this is rarely a problem.
