Leave it be, and find out why it evacuated it's tube. Could be something simple like it wasn't getting any flow, therfore no food, or your parameters might be skewd. Did the entire worm jump, or did it just drop it's crown? If the entire worm is out of it's tube...it will find a spot it likes better and regrow a tube.

wow. facinating creatures. I was in a petshop the other day and a feather duster was pressed against the front of the glass and the tube had grown around it so that the insides were visible through the glass. You could see it moving. very cool.

Update on Feather Duster

Well the poor little guy didnt make it. I cant figure out why he decided to evacuate his tube. My hawaiian Feather Duster is doing just fine.
