    That's kinda cool, I have a group of vermetid snails growing by return, I prefer yours. Maybe they're a family.

    I would guess they're hitch hikers... I have the same kind in my tank (in super low flow/low light areas) and I don't have any big feather dusters.

    Those are great little water polishers i propagate them in our sump and fuge.The few scarlet hermits we have love them for a snack the blue legs don't touch them.We have a few that are getting pretty big their tubes are about 3/16 around and 3to4 inches long and the feathers are starting to get color
