Armadillo Sea Urchin or Colobocentrotus (Podophora) atratus are found from East Africa to Hawaii. They are good grazers of algae that require an aquarium with strong flow.
Livestock arrives in and out of stock very regularly, depending upon availability of the item from the source. The more rare and expensive items are often difficult to hold in stock, and can take time to source, so we generally require a deposit to locate and purchase the extremely rare items
