feather duster reborn?

ok here's an interesting story (to me :P), also my 2nd question.

i acquire a feather duster about 1 1/2 months ago. and about 4 weeks ago the feather duster seems death (does not come out from the tube at all for about 3 weeks!).

and last week, from the same tube, a smaller (half the size of its 'father') feather appear...

i am puzzled. does any seen the same thing? any idea what happened? i don't think its an offspring coz not possible it will grow this big in 3 weeks time...

i'll post some pic when i get back home tonight.
THANKS!

Feather dusters can lose their tops and regrow them. It is the same feather duster as feather dusters do not populate other tubes as far as I know. I've had a few do this, small social feather dusters.

thanks for the reply.
is that a sign of unhealthy water condition or it is just normal?

It can be, or if it was being bothered by something else in the tank.
