Deep sea crab feeding on bioluminescent algae.

It seems to be moving too much to be algae (maybe a brittle star). According to this paper, some deep sea species of those echinoderms use bioluminescence in their arms to deter predators, crabs in particular: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0003347288800204

It’s still neat, though!

Definitely looks like brittlestar limbs or deep sea worms to me.

Also it kinda looks like it’s a crab mage.
