What is this in my frogspawn?

If this is a feather duster, It's a new type to me. It is only one sided and rotates 360 degrees to catch food in the water and sucks it back down a tube. I think I should try and remove or kill it. It won't let my frogspawn open up. Any Ideas

[VIDEO]

I've never seen my feather dusters do that lol. That's pretty cool though. The only time mine go in the tube is if a shadow goes over it or something like that. Or when I get close to it cleanin the glass. That's a hammer btw.

In had a couple of Halloween hermit crabs that came with a bunch of those on their shells.. Mine were a lot smaller than this one but they were a lot if fun to watch.. Btw, that looks like a hammer coral to me.

It's a barnacle. I have one in my hammer as well and a few in other places. Just a filter feeder.

Hammer Coral I'm sorry lol. I have a Frog Spawn right next to it. I would love to keep it but it's causing a few of the polyps to not open up. Can I epoxy or superglue the hole shut?

Honestly I have a large barnacle on my hammer and it doesn't bother him at all. Might be something else going on with it. If you epoxy it you might risk damaging the coral. I'd leave it alone IMO.

Everything is fine. It's the few polyps that are around it that wont open cause everytime It pops out it touches then and they retract.
