Feather Duster Doing somthing Interesting..

My feather duster has his feathers in and he is moving up and out of the tube about a half inch then going back in. It's pretty amazing to see, but is he ok? Also, there is an almost invisible web like string of bubbles that is connected to the top of the tube. Anyone know what this is? Is everything ok?

Dang it! I found his crown under the rock :-( Poor guy. I moved his tube over close to a rock where he can get some shelter and hopefully get better. I'll check out my water parameters and post those later.

Wow, just since I started this post the webby looking stuff has grown from about an inch long to all over the place. Is it possible he is reproducing? Sorry to keep posting, but there is so much happening.

If it threw it's crown it is probably just stressed out. I would not keep moving it. How long have you had it?

Feather dusters replace their crown every so often nothing to worry about.

Ok, thanks for the help. I've had him about 2 weeks.
