    Looks like a non-photosynthetic filter feeder. Probably deeper water. Looks fragile, so leave it alone :p

    Or soon you'll see 101 noobs trying to keep it :whistling:

    According to the article they can be kept in aquariums but require a deep sand bed 30cm deep and lots of care and it even goes on to say if its a sucess they will spawn. Very interesting species this. Shot for sharing

    It's a sea pen. I am involved with a project in the Isimangaliso wetland park (between Red sands and Kosi Bay) and we have sampled some awesome species of sea pens. In the areas of more soft sediment they form densely packed (maybe 1 indv. per m sq.) "forests". Quite a sight, especially when you are used to diving on reefs. It is interesting to see how the sediment between reefs are far from empty "deserts".
