It would have been a Siphonophore - a Cnidarian (the group that
contains jellyfish, anemones and corals). Siphonophores are indeed
colonial animals - the common example being the Portuguese Man Of War
which looks like a jellyfish but is in fact a colony of different parts
(stinging cells, gas bladder cells etc.)
