Dusters will usually leave there tube if they are not happy with there location. I have not had it happen to me personally but try putting it in less or more water flow depending where it is now. Mine is on the bottom in a moderate water flow and loves it. If your duster does fully leave its tube chances are it will make a new tube somewhere in the tank as long as it isint bothered and water quality as on par. HTH
