Take a look at this thread of mine where I had an amphipod ID'd for me. Might help eliminate at the least.

It doesn't look like a pod, it looks like it would be a nudibranch more than anything.

^ its not that, i have a booming population of pods the only reason the title is amiphod,copeod? Is because these critters are about the same size, HOWEVER these guys have large claws ,large antennas and a black stripe down its back with a white dot just below its head and one right above its arse lol

Interesting. I need better pics. The pod I posted does make a cocoon of sorts, though I haven't seen them use sand. Plus, they do come in different shades and some have stripes.
