Tube worm/Feather duster

Hi guys,

I have noticed about three Tube worm/Feather duster\'s on one of my rocks, they are stil very small at this stage.

Now the question is - Will I be able to move them at a later stage or are they fixed to the rock.

The reason I am asking this is that they are very close to each other and I have seen how big they get and I can see they are going to be in each other\'s way.

Thanks in advance

Without seeing a pic for sure, I am going to go out on a limb and tell you that these are NOT the giant hawaiian feather dusters that get large. The small feather duster, no bigger than a half inch tops in diameter, is often found in colonies on rock. There is no need to worry about moving them.

I agree that they will not get as big as the ones you see at the LFS. These will stay small and actually reproduce in your tank if the conditions are right. I have 50 or 60 in my tank.


You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.
