I knew about the feather dusters, I was more worried about the red spots attached to the bi-valve. They are multiplying at such a rate I was moderatly concerned that they might be some aggressive worm, such as that 14" fire bristle worm I pulled out, several months ago. Didn't even have live rock in the tank yet and we moved from a 55 to a 75 and found that bad boy. I had a minor stroke when I figured out why I was always loosing my anenome's. To give you an idea of the growth those things are doing, there was about 10 in the picture I took 2 nights ago, there was about 30, yesterday. And last night they are spreading to other parts of the tank. Knowing what they are and knowing that it's over the spikes that the tank is experiencing with 2 new live rocks in the tank. I know that they'll die back as the tank settles down. Also knowing that they're filter feeders makes them a very welcome addition to the tank. I have several feather dusters in the tank that I've puchased over the yrs. Absolutely love them! And the feather dusters aren't multiplying, although it wouldn't break my heart to have them do so. I also have one Tunicate that's the 2 valved dude in the top picture. He's being quiet and not multiplying so far. I found all the research on him to be quit interesting.
