Whirlygigs fly away so if you don't have a tight fitting screen cover, they will disappear.

Like Mike said, whirligigs can and will fly off.

take it home, take a big silver spoon, fill it with water and put that whirlgig in the level spoon.
get out a magnifying glass and check that dude out.
kind of remind me of a hightech armored csa merrimac ( civil war era ).
pretty cool. amazing how fast they are. some smell like apples. sometimes i use them as a natural aireator in my closed cooler, hehe.
ive put them in the cement pond but they soon fly away.
big swimming swarms are impressive. beautiful patterns on the water's surface.
ive never been biten by one but have been told they do. some get almost 3/4" long.

The Pectinatella you find drifting up to shore this time of year are senescent colonies- they'll just rot in your tank
If you want the Bryozoan experience, just cook up a batch of Jello and dump it into your tank. Fun for the whole family and it's safe for the kids too!!

I had two of them. They just starved and died.
