    Thing growing next to feather duster

    Hey yall. I woke up this morning to find this thing next to my feather duster growing on the rock. It looks like a somewhat opaque hollow ball with two tubes growing out the front. Is this just my feather worm reproducing? Or is it something I need to be worried about?

    Feather Duster/Tube Worm Getting a Haircut

    Hi all, I’ve noticed from time to time my tube worm/feather duster (calcareous variety, white/red fan) seems to get a “haircut.” It’s happened several times, and the worm seems to grow them back quite quickly. I assume something is doing this; there is a peppermint shrimp that hangs out...
