Question small polyp growing on live rock

I have a small white polyp growing off my live rocks. The live rock themselves have a pink/red hugh to them at this point. They are wicked small and my camera does not do it justice but it it connected by stalk to a small round head with many whispy arms around the disk. I believe I saw them grab onto a brine shrimp with some intention.

Welcome to 3reef,

Sounds like a feather duster to me as well.

Here is a link to the common live rock hitch-hikers. Perhaps you can compare images.

Nope, they're hydroids. You should be seeing jellyfish soon!
