    I don't understand what is going on with my feather duster I bought. I bought it about a week ago. The "fan" was very full and looked awesome. But it seems that day by day it loses more of it's fullness. It's like it's withering away. Any reason why? My fish and crabs for the most part leave it alone and I just tested the water and everything is great.

    it is possible that the feather duster will loose its crown and re-grow a new one. this new one will be more "suited" for filtering your tanks water.

    or on the other hand, it could be something else?

    I certainly hope that it's going to regrow...

    not to worry, as long as its still alive and well and in its tube, its fine
    myn always drops its outer crown every year, i guess its part of the growing process
