I had to share these photos. Both of my tuxedo urchins have been ripping up my green star polyps and wearing them for weeks. The coral seem fine with it! Is this quite common?
Best fishes, Tom

If you see a tuxedo without anything on it then you have a problem! They use bits around the tank for cover :) A healthy tuxedo will cover itself in what ever it can find :)

Do they know they are doing this?
Is it on purpose?
