I may not like the answer, but what are these

I have 100s of them in my tank, they are on every piece of ceramic





Can anyone ID them for me please, they are like small feather dusters.

If you're on about the small feathers all over then they're just little tube worms I think. They're filter feeders and are fine.

Try a wrasse from the halichoeres family. They are usually peaceful and are reef safe but to like to eat worms.

But feathers are good! But understand if they are spreading to huge populations.

I cant tell from the pic mate 100% what they are but a sign of a healthy system and considering your using ceramics would have thought a welcome sight,it means the ceramics are coming to life understand though if they bug you we all have our little crazy quirks

That's reassuring to hear Vikky, I thought it was me, as long as they are not a problem in the making

Thanks for your comments as well fellas, cheers Vikky
