I don't claim to be an expert by any means but I am sure on this.
Thank you ricksreef.. After some research I finally found out that they are in fact feather dusters... If you could give me the following answers to these questions that would be helpful too.
1.) will these feather dusters die if there is light on them?
2.) I like the fact that you can see them so is it ok to keep it turned up like it is or if that will kill them then should I turn it back over?
3.) if I have to turn it back over so that they are covered, then I would like to just completely remove them... Do you have any knowledge of how to get the hard body detached from the rock without having to slowly pick it away or hurt any other organisms the rock might have in it?
