Husbandry

This beautiful sea urchin is extremely toxic.

Asthenosoma marisrubri, the species of fire urchin found in the Red Sea, has long been considered a color variant of Asthenosoma varium. Only in 1998 has it been described as a distinct species.

Regarding the husbandry and toxicity of A. marisrubri the same precautions that have been described for A. varium apply. Despite the relatively simple requirements for maintaining this animal in a species tank (it is not reef safe), to keep it should - if at all - only be tried by specialists that are familiar with venomous animals.
