    feather dusters?

    I added a few pieces of LR about 6 months ago and now notice small white creatures showing up around the tank. They have a white tube about 1/2 inch long and a clear feather duster. Was ok when I saw the first few but now they seem to be spreading. Anything to worry about?

    They're great little filter feeders.

    Yes as Susan mentioned, they are great filterers and a part of why we pay that much money for pieces of rock. They are aaaaaall part of the biofilter system in our tanks.
