are sea urchins good for aquariums?

just checking cause it would look cool to have a couple of small sea urchins(the normal black ones you see in the pacific ocean)(I live in Puerto Rico so I see them a lot)

Since when is Puerto Rico in the Pacific ocean?

Urchins are okay, if you don't mind having living bulldozers in your tank.

Yeah, they are known for munching through coralline, knocking over everything that isn't epoxied, picking up debris in their spines, etc...

Also, keep in mind that those black long-spined ones get pretty large, so do some research into whether the species you like could keep kept in the size tank you have.
