hurt feather duster

I had 2 feather dusters that were attached to each other. I tired to pull on off to separate them, but I didn't reach low enough, and pulled the tube off of him. I don't think he is able to retract anymore. I moved it down into my refugium to get it away from anything that may bring harm to it.

My question is: will it "heal" or grow back? How long does that take?


-50gal tank
-20gal tall sump / refugium.
-About 15-20 lbs of live rock
-60 lbs (3") of sand.
-2x65w power compact lights
-2x18w power compact in the refug.
-bak pak 2R
-3 LARGE feather dusters all differebt colors
-orange spotted goby
-fire fish
-12 or so hermits
-50-60 nassairus snails
-about 12 turno snails
-emrald crab

The duster can easily grow back the tube. As long as there is nothing to bother it, the water specs are good and it was undamaged otherwise; it should recover just fine.
