After cleaning the aquarium last weekend the mouse went for a walk around the aquarium. It seemed to be stuck in the corner so after a while noticing it couldnt get out we decided to help him.

Dead

The Urchin started acting more strange each day, until it didnt move much at all anymore, stayed above the sand and started loosing his hair. We took him out in a separate environmont, and from that moment it ended quickly for the urchin. He was one of our first inverts in the aquarium, I'm really sad about it Sad

On february 27 2010 we declared him dead.
