Duster Clusters, Bispira brunnea, grow as a mass of individual small tubeworms whose bases anchor to rocky or sandy substrate. They should be housed in tanks with gentle waterflow and out of direct light - preferably in a shady area. Like other tubeworms, the Duster Clusters have protruding feathery radioles that filter the water column for small planktonic foods - if injured or wasted away these radioles can eventually grow back.
Duster Clusters are more delicate and difficult to keep than traditional feather dusters - they should only be kept by experienced aquarists. Care should be taken while transporting and moving the tube clusters as they can fracture quite easily. Duster Clusters should also not be housed with predatory fish or inverts, urchins, or serpent starfish that can attack or damage them. If housed properly, the Duster Clusters can be some of the most unique and attractive organisms in your tank.
