The Tuxedo Spineless Urchin, scientifically known as Mespilia globulus, is a unique and popular invertebrate in the marine aquarium hobby, notable for its striking appearance and lack of sharp spines. It exhibits a spherical shape with a distinctive pattern of alternating coloured bands or spots, typically in shades of blue, black, and white, resembling a tuxedo. This urchin is not only valued for its aesthetic appeal but also for its role in algae control within the aquarium, as it efficiently grazes on various types of algae, helping to maintain a clean and balanced ecosystem.
