Feather Dusters aren't technically a coral, but they are sessile (stuck in one spot), filter feeding, beautiful and hardy. They are very appealing to the hobbyists due to their unique structure and fan-like cilias. Like any invert, they need higher salinity than fish do, and they don't tolerate copper at all. Most aquarists should have no problem keeping these alive in their aquarium with no special attention as feathers will usually get enough food from fish waste and fine food particles. Be sure to add them to well established aquariums. When stressed or frightened the Feather Duster will retract into its tube for protection. For best health and growth, weekly feedings with some kind of tiny food like zooplankton is recommended.

ACCLIMATION: Avoid exposing new aquatic life to bright lights after opening the box. Turn off aquarium lights prior to floating aquatic life. Allow the sealed bag with your new fish to float in your aquarium for at least 15 minutes (but no longer than one hour) to ensure the water in the bag matches the temperature in your aquarium. A bacteria booster addition can assist with the addition of new aquatic life. Petco offers free water testing in store to determine if your water is safe for the addition of new aquatic life. DIET: A well-balanced diet consists of a variety of flakes, pellets, freeze-dried and frozen foods, depending on the species. FEEDING: Feed sparingly and no more than fish can eat in 1-2 minutes. Overfeeding can quickly foul the water, especially in smaller aquariums.
