Hi guys I need some help. I'm trying to get my LFS to order a special variant of feather duster for me, but the only kind available is Sabellastarte Spectabilis, which is just the typical large Hawaiian feather duster. I don't know if this duster is just a color variant of purple and gold/ purple and yellow, or if it actually has a different name. The one specimen they have is in their display tank and is not for sale Does anyone have any answers for me, is there a different scientific name for it, or it it just a color variant and I have to have him order Sabellastarte sp. And hope that I get lucky with the color? Thanks guys! ❤

Looks to be a Coco worm?

Is the tube soft and leathery, or hard and calcareous?
It's soft, I looked it up and it's been sold before as a purple and yellow or purple and gold feather duster, I thought maybe coco work too, but the only trace of something that looks the same was a purple and gold feather
