Huma Trigger with Urchin?



I tried it years ago... (Wanted some kind of cleaner for my agressive tank). The urchin never had a chance. The morning after I introduced him, there was nothing but spines and a bit of test left. I am guessing that it was the humu trigger that did him in, as urchins are a natural food source for triggers, although i had a porcupine puffer that also could have been the culprit.

I have my Picasso with a pincusion urchin. I havent seen him nip at it once. They have been together for about 5 months now - no problems

It will definitely be hit or miss. Triggers are primary predators of urchins, and pretty inquisitive too. Eventually, I would say the urchin might be in trouble.
