Not sure if this is a coral or what (I think it is a polyp) it is reddish brown and I see 4 grouped near eachother and 2 are out of hiding...

Does it react if you try touch it with tongs? Cuz if it does it might be a feather duster.

I poked it and it did retract... but it doesn't look like any feather duster I have ever seen... and I just found a slightly larger colony on the same rock... I poked them and they are really attached to the rock

Edit... did a Google search... I believe they are feather dusters... time will tell though!!! Anyways how does one care for a feather duster group? I am counting... 18-19 tiny ones...

Okay... now my tank is still cycling (day 2) so how would I go about feeding them then? Is it possible to buy small things they can feed on? I have frozen plankton... I ask because I also found 3-4 spaghettI worms in the live rock and would like to keep them alive as well :)
