Coco Worms and Feather dusters

I guess this is an easy question....Are they the same creature basically? The coco worms look much more colorful and their care is listed about the same on websites.

Thanks!!

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Thanks for the link, but maybe I'm having a blonde moment but I'm still as confused.

I guess bottom line question is would a coco worm do well in a 125g reef tank? Can I get a coco and a feather duster? They are both water column eaters arent they?

Thanks for any further input!

I know the xmas tree worms have some sort of commensal relationship with the porites Sps coral they live in. You have to care for the coral to keep the worms.

I think I may try another feather duster or a coco worm. For all I know the worm that left his home in my 125g might be making anew one somewhere else that i can't see. Well I'm hoping anyways'
