Al, I thought the same thing, but I was so unsure I didn't offer an opinion.

I don't know for sure (maybe Alb920 will tell us for sure), but my guess is it's 1" to 2" total diameter.

Tunicates are strange critters. Kind like a sponge and yet kind of like a coral or an anemone depending on which one you see. Like most sponges, almost all tunicates are very, VERY difficult to keep alive in an aquarium.
