Living Organism Care Information

 
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Litechinus variegatus works best We've had various sp. of urchins over the years, all with varying degrees of success. Our developmental biology labs run spring quarter, and the last couple of years we've placed at least one order with Carolina after the urchins from another vendor provided dismal results. The species we rec'd at this time of year from Carolina have been L. variegatus and they have ended up being almost 1:1 ratio, and 100% fertilization rate in the students labs. Unless we experience otherwise, we'll continue to use Carolina as the source of choice. The boxes were double bagged and boxed this year, so the shipment carrier didn't fret about leaking containers which was a problem last year. Caveat: species will vary from any vendor depending on time of year and weather/seasonal conditions. So far though every time we've had L.variegatus we've had consistently good results, which has not been true of other species.
