There are different kinds of tube worms like feather dusters and ko ko worms. The small little tube worms in and on the rocks are very similar, just a bit different. Out of the ones I know, the ko ko worm is the hardest to keep. Beautiful though!!

The oceans surely would swallow us before a rock comes down to smite the planet of it's life.

Keep the tank parameters good and balanced and feed it. They like phytoplankton just like other feather type worms. They do like to bury their bodies (shells) in soft substrate or mud. I tried looking for more specific information but typing in "koko worm" in google will get you a bunch of websites about the computer virus variety...lol.
