Help me!!!

I'm stressing out!!

Just fed my fish some daphnia and was watching them feed when I noticed this bloody thing in my tank! Now clearly I observe my fish and tank every day for routine maintenance and feeding and I have never seen this before, I'm very vigilant too spending ages watching the fish as most of us probably do.

It's in a green tube that looks like a plant but doesn't fit any live plants I have, it looks like a millipede and it pops out and waves around then goes back in, then attaches to another leaf and moves around, it looks well fed and has a black line down the middle like a well fed shrimp.

Does anyone know what it is, it's distressing me?

Help please

Is it possible to get a picture? That would help.

It lives in the long green thing and moves around?

I know you're point at it, but I'm still not sure that I should be seeing. Is a closer or higher res picture possible?

It's in the green thing that I'm touching, brighter green than the plant leave. It's like it's house and it moves around with itself, it's weird.

Well, I have no idea what it is but I would net it out and put it in a jar for further observation.
