Those 3 things don't add to the bio-load.

Update! Just got back from my LFS (The barrier reef). I dont know if anyone here has heard of it from south florida. I picked up a large Hawaiin Feather Duster. A Staghorn Hermit. A Yellow Watchman Goby. and 3 Nassarius snails.

After drip acclimating them for a little over and hour, I added them. Theyre so cool! But the goby and the snails immediatly ran for cover and retreated to under the sand and under the rock. When do you think ill see the snails again? Heres a pic..

the next time you feed your tank. That's the neat thing about Nass snails, it's like they got radar for food....

Yea i actually noticed his eye or some sort of shaft sticking through the sand where I saw him escape to under the sand.

Also whats the best place to put the feather duster and should he bi in the sand? On a rock? On top of the sand?

That shaft is quite soft so handle with care. I stuck my Duster into a large shell so I could move him around until I found a spot that both he and I liked.
And one on the rocks:
