On another note, my Feather Duster has been "shedding" some of the dusters, is that normal? How do I fix it?

Thanks

How are those snails helping you out with algae? I may need a few for my diatoms. Btw, your tank is Really pretty. I like the xenon a lot. How big is the feather duster you have that's losing its feathers? I dont think that's normal.

It's normal for them to shed feathers and even drop their crown of they are not happy. They grow back.

They're also gonna drop their crown if the are reproducing. A new worm will stay in the tube and the old will crawl off and make a new tube.

Well it could be unhappy if fish are picking at it or if it's in too much flow- have an algae grazers nipping at it? Tangs? Or recently move your powerhead or rocks around? How long have you had the feather duster?

Nope, nothing has changed in the tank since I put in in mid-October. I also don't have anybody nipping at it. Thanks for the help!
