Picking up a Tuxedo Urchin?

C Lo Slice

Recommended Posts

I have a Tuxedo that has been on my Maxi-Jet 1200 (connected to HOB skimmer) all day. I'm thinking he got on there and hasn't been able to find his way off. Today is my water change day and I have to take the skimmer off the tank in order to reach into the tank. Can I just pick him up? I used to have one that was a little larger than golf ball size (this one is about 1" diameter), and I brushed against him one day and he stung the hell out of me. I was told this may just be a skin sensitivity?? Anyways, I see people pick them up by hand all the time. I just didn't want to do it and get stung again. Any suggestions?
