Feather dusters (or fan worms) come in a variety of colorations ranging from tan and white to purple and tan. They are found in oceans worldwide, typically in shallow to moderately deep marine environments. They are most commonly found in tropical and temperate regions, where they inhabit a variety of habitats such as coral reefs, rocky substrates, seagrass beds, and sandy bottoms.
Feather Dusters need to be housed in a well-established reef system as it is dependent upon plankton for its diet. They are popular inhabitants in saltwater aquariums due to their unique and graceful appearance. Feather dusters get their name from the feathery structures that they use for feeding and respiration. It is very intolerant of copper-based medications.
Remember that successful keeping of feather dusters requires patience, dedication, and a well-maintained aquarium. If you're new to saltwater aquarium keeping, consider doing thorough research and consulting with experienced hobbyists or professionals to ensure the best care for your feather dusters.
