green jelly thing in my live rock

Hi all, last week i purchased two large pieces of live rock and in it, i have dicovered an organism i have never seen before.
Unfortunately i do not own a digital camera so i will try to explain it the best i can, If anyone is able to identify it and maybe give me a link on it so i can read up on it, i would appreciate it very much..
When i first saw it it was approx 3" long and has a clear green jellyish appearance with hundreds of florescent green dots on it, it is in the middle of my live rock and then after a couple of days it has produced two funnels that have come out of the rock, the funnels are approx 1/2" long.
Both rocks have this organism and there is a funnel right up the top of the rock in a crevice that i would think is attatched to the main body, so it could be quite big and i just can't see it..
If anyone knows what this is, can you tell me how they feed, do i need to feed them and are they ok for my tank..
Thank you all

Sounds very much like a sponge.

Not too sure what this could be. But I am sure someone will know.

Moved to I.D. forum for better exposure
