Micro duster hitchhiker

found a very tiny tiny feather duster, kinda cute though its a worm

about 3mm in size! amazingly small!

would be neat if it makes it and grows larger

it's hiding in a frag plug hole

Yes, feather duster worms are worms. They grow all over the place in a healthy tank.

Meant to add also that micro fauna will wax and wane. I get these periodic explosions of small white micro stars when they are everywhere; in a few weeks I'll be hard pressed to find even one.
