Feather dusters

Got two feather dusters yesterday and immediately one got attacked and eaten by a naussario snail. Wow, a $10 snail food. Is this normal? The other one is ok for now.

Are you sure the snail ate it? I've had a duster with nassarius snails and they didn't touch it. Maybe it was eating algae on the tube?

After the snail was done, the crown just floated away.

It might have been injured or already dead. I doubt a nassarius would eat a healthy specimen.

Feather dusters will drop their crown if they're stressed. It may grow back, it might move to another location, or it might be dead. Time will tell.
