    HI

    I have had a feather duster worm in my tank since it cycled about 4 months back.

    i did some rearranging yesterday and see it has created a new tube underground anout 10 cm long, turning uo at the end about a cm high.

    Is it gouning to form a new head?

    thanks

    my one corner of my tank is absolutely over run by these fellas and they have really long tubes goin absolutely everywhere. when a hole in made in its tube, seen my hermits do this a few times, a new head appears there and another tube starts growin. like branchin off. good filter feeders, but when they overrun the place its time to introduce the butterflys;)
