Stars & Dusters?

2 different LFS's and two different answers. So, where else to go but the collective supreme knowledge of the members of this board! :P

Can Serpent Stars, Brittle Stars or Sand Sifting Stars co-exist peacefully with Feather Dusters?

I got 2 brittles, 2 sand sifters, and 4 feather dusters in a 75g They've co-existed for 6 months without incident. 1 duster is in the sand and the other 3 are on the rocks. The brittles hang out on the rocks and the sifters in the sand and no problems.
