What is living on my torch?

I have noticed a hole in my torch skeleton. Look in the pic. There is something white and moving in and out of a small hole only at night. You can see a white finger like thing in the middle of the 3 head of the coral.

I think I found the answer, it looks just like this: Microscopy-UK Micscape Microscopy and Microscopes Magazine

My first thought was a feather duster as well.

I saw something similar on my goniopora. I snapped these shots. Thought it may of been aptasia at first.

Yeah they're just simple feather dusters. Harmless and sometimes pretty. I consider them a free gift when they come on a coral.
