Constant flow on feather duster

Hey guys, just wondering if a constant flow on the feather duster is okay? His feathers never are still and I didn't know if this is bad or not?

I would place him in the rocks and let him attach.

Does it matter if I place him high or low? Away from direct water flow? Do I lay him on the rock or try to put him in a hole or wedge him in somewhere ? Lol I know I am being a pain in the butt. Again I apologize. I hate pickin him up cuz he flies into his tube so hard and fast it scares the crap outta me lol.

No problem? place his tube in between rocks a few inches above your substrate where it will get medium flow.

Try to place it without squishing the tube.
