    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...

    Sorry about the quality my tablet sucks at taking pictures and my phone is worse...

    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...

    They are filter feeders and mainly eat plankton.

    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 :)

    Frozen is fine and the worms well eat NLS pellets.
