If you blow this up to original, you can see the green stalks with orange stripes in the middle of this photo (yes I made them pull in their tentacles). The second photo shows their normal posture.

Found two of them, each about 1/2", slightly different coloring. Off a dock, living in filamentous green seaweed. Very shrimplike tails, but can't rule out some form of isopod either. One of these photos shows them with a Syllidae in my photo box; the clung to it and rode it around but didn't try to eat it.
