i picked up a nice little feather duster today.

It really depends on the age of the set up. The older the tank, the less likley these things are needed. If you do use a food supp, be sure you use it very sparingly as they tend to create a nutrient rich system and unwanted algaes over time. You will have more success feeding them with phytoplankton than anything else.

Cheers
Steve

it's a pretty young tank.
I can use a pipette to drop a little phytoplankton right onto the duster, right? that way I won't be over dosing and giving myself algae.

You could but I don't think that will increase the chances of better feeding for this type of animal. Just use about ¬Ĺ the amount recommeded by the manufacturer and stick to about once a week or so.
