I recently noticed these really small things that sort of look like feather duster on a piece of live rock I’ve had in my tank for years. They look like they have a hard bit below the top part but I can’t really tell what they are. I’ve had both feather dusters and aptaisia in my tank in the past but haven’t seen any of either in years.

I can't see what you're referring to in the photo, but I don't think feather dusters can grown on rock ... they typically bury the lower parts of their tube in the sand NEXT to a rock.

based on your description, sounds like Aptaisia
