Green long plate coral

Bought a green long tentacle plate coral today. He was withdrawn where I met the person and it was already bagged. It is definitely alive but hasn't fully extended today. It has a lot of little white webbing on it. Looks like long strings of spider webs. Any idea what this white webbing is? Are they feeder tentacles?

Params: amm 0, trite 0, trates 0, calc 450, ph 8.2.

Does it have feather dusters in the area? What is next to it? Chemical warefare possibly?

I think that duster has anchored himself to the rock. I will try to move it.

Thanks for the info. I had no idea they would react to feather dusters.

That feather duster is holding on for dear life. I can't get him off the rock. Any ideas to get him to release his foot?

Here is a pic. My hand is for reference on distance. The duster is withdrawn but is 2-3 inches behind the plate.
