Feather Dusters, Sabellastarte magnifica, are very popular tubeworms that do very well in reef tanks

Feather Dusters, Sabellastarte magnifica, are very popular tubeworms that do very well in reef tanks.  They have a large crown of “feathers” that can be a couple inches in diameter and come in a variety of colors, usually reddish browns and white.  The worm itself lives in a flexible tube that it makes and when startled it will retract back into the tube and stay there for a little bit.  Occasionally it will drop its crown of feathers and grow a new one over a period of weeks.  They are easy to care for and will feed on detritus and any stray bits of food that drift their way.  They will stick their tube to the surrounding rocks, and even grow a new tube if they don’t like where they are at in the aquarium, so don’t be alarmed if they show up somewhere else at some point.

Tube worms do best when shipped FedEx overnight.

    Less expensive and better quality than Caribbean dusters I can purchase in my LFS! It was closed during the entire temp acclimation float but opened in my hand while I was placing it! I’ve never had that happen. Very happy with my purchase and wish I would have order one more! Thanks Philip and Kara!
