    I have this thing tangled in my one of my paly's. You can only see it when the paly's are closed.

    Any idea what it is?

    They look like feather dusters.
    If you move something close to them, do they retract?

    Agreed Feather duster, filter feeder. They can take over a tank over time but are soft and relatively easy to remove from the rocks.

    nice filter feeders.
    let them be. Unless they are really taking over.
