    I added a pencil Urchin to my tank about a month ago. Today I cannot seem to find it anywhere! Is there anything that would have eaten it and left no trace of it?!?! It is in a tank with a Sailfin, Yellow Tang, Coral Beauty, Snowflake Eel, a few clowns, a Foxface, a Copper Banded Angel, a small clown Trigger, a Yellow Eyed Tang, and a few small damsels...

    They are nocturnal for the most part, it may just be hiding til its dark in the tank.

    Bones is correct, so I would not be too worried, except your tank is too clean for it to find any food.

    Thank you, I found it! What would you suggest to help ensure the urchin is adequately fed?

    I had eight purple urchins come in as hitchhikers on my TBS liverock. They were size of a dime, and in 6 weeks grew to golfball sizes eating algae, but then they started relocating corals and live rock so I dropped them in my fuge, and they all disappeared.
