  • Pin cushion urchin (Pseudoboletia sp.).
  • Reef Compatibility: Reef safe with caution
  • Temperament: Peaceful
  • Care Level: Intermediate
  • Diet: Omnivore
  • Shipping size: 4cm to 8cm

The Pin cushion urchin will do well in most aquariums of a reasonable size containing lots of live rock, suggested at 100+ litres to ensure space for grazing and foraging. Pin cushion urchins are omnivores that primarily feed on algae. Pin cushion urchins are grazers and do an excellent job of helping to control algae in the aquarium, when no algae is present it should be fed algae sheets. Generally peaceful, not known to commonly or intentionally harm any other invertebrates or corals, they are however fairly strong and relentless in their quest to get at food.

These urchins originate from the reefs of Sri Lanka and remain fairly small for an urchin with a maximum size around 10cm.


Due to variations in species your item may not be identical to that featured in the image, we do however ensure the species is correct and that the markings and colors are very similar.

Before ordering please familiarise yourself with our alive arrive guarantee and the process for making claims under our guarantee.

We offer an 'Arrive Alive' guarantee on all corals, critters, fish and invertebrates. If they do not arrive alive then subject to these terms and conditions you can request a replacement or refund. We guarantee our livestock will arrive alive, there is no reason why it should arrive any other way due to the care and professional way in which they are packaged with heatpacks, polystyrene boxes and all other necessary precautions considered for the species we are shipping.
