The algae is definately cyano bacteria. The main food source will be PO4. Whether intoduced via foods or the water source, that will be the main contributor. Manual syphoning, increased water flow and regular water changes with RO water will help in eliminating it. If this is a fairly new set up, this type of algae is common and may go away on it's own..

The "featherduster" is a Sabellid worm. A harmless type of sedentary polychaete.
