Mystery creature

I am fairly new to this - have a 9 gallon nano, marine tank. Something is living in the live sand, has made a hole beneath the live rock, and spits out sand from time to time. Can't see into the hole due to the angle of the tank and the hole. Anyone have a suggestion of what this might be?

It could be a shrimp, or crab.
