Green Spaghetti Worm?

I wish I had a picture to go along with this, but here is my description...

The critters in question are approximately 1/2 inch in length (body only). They live mostly in the sand bed, but there are some in my rocks. The tube (body) is a light green color, and it is always under the sand or in a hole in the rock. They extend a number of filaments out across the rock and sand and snag the sinking pellets I feed, in addition to parts of shrimp molts that settle to the bottom. The filaments are green and black striped, not like the white filaments of a spaghetti worm. I've seen some pics of spaghetti worms, and they look very similar, but mine are not white.

Any ideas...

I will try to get some pics, but I hope someone can ID based on my description.
