Amazing sea creatures

The "unicorn of the sea" up to 100 feet long which acts like a big water filter. I wonder how it would do in a large salt tank?

I don't think something like this could ever be kept alive in captivity for very long.

Well the zooids. that make it up are only several mm in size that cluster together into large groups. I was thinking they might do fine in a tank but I have no experience with salt tanks (don't care for the briny smell).

The food requirement would be near impossible to match.
