    Anybody keep these?? I was down in San Fran last night and just happened upon a very shady looking fish store.( it wasnt really a fish store) WOW they had some really cool stuff, like a sea feather and these little tree things that were kind of like a feather duster but looked like a pom pom and tons of Xmas tree rocks with blue, red, yellow and orange worms. The sea feather was red purple and blue kind of like a peacock feather. I want it sooo bad. These guys had all kinds of stuff, huge flats like 10x12 of stuff Ive never seen. I do have a feeling like its sort of black market stuff IDK?

    So do they do well in our tanks? I searched the forum and didnt come up with anything but feather dusters.

    Yeah they are super cool. My LFS has had one before, but it wasn't for sale... They said the same thing -- usually they only live a few weeks. It's cool how they swim in the water. Kinda in spurts.

    I got one from the LFS a couple years back. It was a beautiful deep red color. May even have been the one Biff saw. ;) It lasted about 2 1/2 weeks in my tank before it started dropping it's feather arms and then finally it died.

    I can't remember, but I've known it for a very long time. Maybe you had it in your signature at one time. Not sure.
