The stringy stuff is it's guts. They do this when they are irritated. Maybe something was picking at it or something.

interesting....i have been in the hobby for a decade an never seen that. What is weird is all 6 of that particular shroom was doing it on both sides of the tank.

Imo something is picking at it or its losing a chemical battle which seems crazy since hairys usually win

if they are all acting the same see if a fish or predator is bugging them - maybe run some carbon also

I have a grey/blue one that did that, sort of. It lost a battle with my torch when it fell, and a pie wedge chunk, mayby 20% of shroom's mass, was gone and those strings were hanging out. It's recovered now, 2 months later, and no visable scar or anything, just lost growth time.
