These were found between 35 and 55 meters depth. Indo Pacific area. The collector is curious about an I.D. and whether there is any demand for them.

Thanks,

Dave

I would vote for tunicates. Fascinating animals, they start off as vertebrates and end up like that.

:D

Tunicates are chordates, not vertebrates. All vertebrates are chordates, not all chordates are vertebrates. Square/rectangle kind of thing. But among invertebrates, they are the closest relatives to us.

From the pic, I would say Tunicates. The question about demand depends on their survivability in home tanks, which for tunicates is generally pretty poor.
Get them to some people who feed a lot, and see how they do. :D

Some do quite well while most don't do good at all. I've had them be parasites in one of my systems that I feed a lot of rotifers to.
