Looks like a tube worm/feather duster to me...nothing to worry about. If you can get a clearer pic so we can make sure that will help.

So feather duster would grow and be a cool addition right?

I will see about using the real camara tonight.

They are mini dusters. They come and go depending on the nutrients in your tank.
