Creature ID help, please

Hey yall,
I apologize now for not having a picture to go with this, but Im hoping to take one tonight when the tank lights come on. In my refugium last night, I noticed two small jellyfish type creatures. The best description I can give is:

about 1-2 cm long (about the size, or slightly larger than some of the bigger amphipods it was near
Translucent
Moves like a jellyfish
shape is a somewhat open tube... it's body is basically an oval, which wraps around to form a tube, though not the whole thing, its more like two "wings" which wrap around and join to form the tube.
Has a mouth type opening, but even though I could see inside it, didnt seem to have any internal structure
It definately pulses for motion
They are NOT your "normal" semicircular jellyfish shape
It had no appendages that I could discern, nor any sort of stingers trailing it

I know this is not the greatest description, but its the best I can do til I see it again, lol.

If you have any ideas, I would love to look them up on the web and see if I can ID this thing. I cant take a pic now, cuz they're nowhere to be found, so hopefully I'll see more in the middle of the night.

I know I wasn't sure on the phone earlier, but reading this I'm wondering if this is it?

Thanks Prez. Intellegence has never been my strong point... I'll get right on that!
