Hey everyone,

Do you think these are feather dusters? To me they look like it, but just confirming. Haven’t added anything in this tank in over 2 months. They’re definitely coming from the white tubes on the rock.

It seems to me they do have the red lines on the feathers indicating that they’re feather dusters.

Thanks!

Actually classified as Tube Worms, because it actually is a worm in a tube. The feathery crown catches particulates in the water, like most filter feeders. These can spread quickly, but don't cause any real issues. These are reef safe however
