If it’s a feather duster it’s a cool little friend. Just a filter feeder. Looks like that’s what it might be but hard to tell with the spectrum of the pictures. I’m sure others will chime in as well

If we have the same thing. I knew they were worms but unsure if they were called feather dusters. I got some on some base to k I purchased. They will multiply. Depending on the size of your tank a few bumble bee snails will keep them in check. I like them but they were getting out of hand. I put 6-8 bubble bee snails in and they went to work. I removed all but 2 bumble bee because I didn’t want them all gone. I put the other BB snails in my QT tank until I need them again.
