hey i have a coral banded shrimp with my toadstools and he doesnt pick at them but he does sit in them and cleans them off for me. So is your actualy damaging the duster or just cleaning ???? but i never had any problems with my shrimp infact he just caught my fire worm this morning and is eating him!!

Actually peppermint shrimp are notorious for picking on feather dusters as well as some species of Zoanthuds. Once they start, they won't stop.

I had cleaner shrimp completely strip a porites coral of it's christmas tree worms. But they left all the hitchhiker feather dusters alone. I guess it depends on the shrimp.
