Blue leg hermits + feather dusters = ?

Buddy of mine is beginning to have an algea problem. Blue leg hermits would probably fix the problem but he is worried that they will eat his feather dusters. He has a piece of rock that has 3-4 small feather dusters on it. If he gets some blue leg hermits will the feather dusters get eaten?

He was also wondering how big the feather dusters get. TIA

38 gal SW, CC, 40lbs base rock, 5lbs live, emporer 280, bio-wheel 330,tronic heater, 2 O. clowns, 1 firefish.

29 gal FW, boring...soon to be salt I think.

10 gal SW, 20lbs LS, 20lbs base rock, 1 unhappy domino damsel (he was in the 38...switched the percs and the damesel recently).

There are lots of species of dusters. Seems like the ones on live rock stay small.
My hermits never bother my corals or dusters.
