The Feather Duster, Sabellastarte giganteus, also known as the Fan Worm, is a marine segmented worm that attaches its calcium-carbonate tube to a rocky or sandy substrate by its base. The worm lives inside this protective tube. They then have a feathery crown that peeks out filtering the water column for food using its specialized tentacles. Their tentacles are completely retractable and can be fascinating to watch open and close. 

Good size. Very pretty and graceful, and fun to watch!

Great size and nice price and fast shipping not like the other online guys! I will order more from saltwaterfish.com for sure. Opened up very fast and looks great much larger then the one I had. Cant wait to see if he spreads.

Our duster arrived in beautiful shape and opened as soon as it hit the water. Less happy with the color though, was looking for something as the picture portrayed. But still a nice addition to our tank.

Nice specimen, was out and happy on arrival showing that there must have been limited stress during delivery.

We really enjoy our feather duster. Seems to have mind of her own. Beautiful specimen.

These are a great deal for the price, they are big fat and happy and instantly acclimated to my tank.

These are absolutely wonderful. Once they were acclimated they were waving beautifully.

Have to be the wife's favorite creature in the tanks. Make a wonderful display throughout the tank. Arrived strong and have been "flowering" day and night. The fish are only curious so I put them everywhere.

Wonderfully beautiful creatures. They opened up almost immediately and my family really enjoy watching them "fan" the waves for a meal all day and night. Great color and a great show. Of course I have ordered more as they make my tanks flow.

Great Item! Was completely open when I took it out of the box and looks great in my tank.

Big and healthy dusters! I bought two of them when they were on sale. Both of them opened up quickly in the acclimation bucket.
