    I checked Reef Creature Identification and my identification of the photo above was based on pages 402 - 403 for the Giant Tunicate. Please let me know if I am wrong.

    Thanks

    Most likely you are since you saw it! I didn't . The exterior certainly looks like some of the tunicates in our waters and the siphon is not totally dissimilar to some tunicate siphons I've seen.

    There were many of these on the wreck (sorry - don't remember the name) when we dove in Pompano Florida.
