Feather duster.

My feather duster are discarding its feather, it seems to discard them one by one, why is this so? My water specs are alright, I have 3 feather duster, 2 coco tube worm, all looking fine, just one of the feather duster is discarding its feather. BTW yesterday I move a small piece of LR and the LR land on him a little, and after around 8 hours, I find that why it did'nt came out, so I move the LR over a little, and it came out soon after. But its feather seems like going to die, all facing one side, not as elegant as before. And today it start to discard its feather. :< Will it recover on its own?

The rock smashing is probably to blame. When stressed feather dusters will drop their crowns, it the cause of the stress is removed and the water conditions remain good, it should regrow it's crown in a couple of weeks.
