Brown cloudy stringiness coming from multiple mouths

Any idea what would cause this? No noticeable changes that would trigger it. Looked normal before and hours after.

Nope, unless I'm missing something, it's just expelling waste after eating. Mushroom poop. Nothing to be concerned about.

Thanks. That's interesting. I've never seen them eat. Wonder which of the foods I put in that they actually had a taste for.

They have a symbiotic algae called zooxanthellae that lives inside of them, they poop some out every so often.
