Sorry the pictures are not the best but I just noticed with my new led blue light that this thing glows orange. The pictures won't show that. I also noticed if startled this thing closes up and hides. I have no idea what it is it came not the piece of live rock I got. Can anyone help me?

What is this?

Could this be a zoa? And if it is my research shows they are poisonous is this true? Sorry for all the questions

Looks like a feather duster. Can you get a picture without the blues on?

And for the record, there is a toxin in zoas and palys. They vary in intensity, but it isn't really anything to worry about...just never boil live rock that you suspect they have been on. That is a good way to no longer be alive from what I've read. But from personal experience, I've handled zoas and rubbed by eyes afterwards. Only got a mild irritation and didn't even turn red.
