    Buddy, there is tons to ID there. Pulsing Xenia, some dead coral, maybe a an anemone and some tube/fan worms. Could be an Aiptasia anemone in there too.

    @Franna29, does it stay in one place? From the pics it looks as if it is moving around, but it might just be the angle of the pics.

    It stays in a tube attached to the dead coral, so yes it stays in that tube. comes out a bit more at night. does net seem to bother the xinia at all.. and when disturbed in retracts quickly like your feather dusters
