Oh ****!

I'm not sure if this belongs in this category, but I couldn't find one that fit.

I have 2 feather dusters in my tank, they were doing great till a few weeks ago. One blew its crown and hasnt been out since, the other one I accidently pulled the tube apart when i was trying to fix a fallen rock (long story)

Anyway, is it likely these guys are dead? I moved the one I damaged to the fuge. The other is still in the tank.

What caused this? Water parameters bad? I will test the water when I get home later tonight.

The feather duster of the worm can be lost often if the worm is stressed. Leave them as they are as there is a good chance they will grow another feather crown back.
