This behaviour is new to me, I have never seen the other discomas and rhodactis I have exhibit prey capture like these new blue ones. The entire process took about 10 minutes from when the pellets I broadcasted for the fish landed on the oral discs for them to push the pellets to their mouths and completely swallow them.

Most mushrooms will eat food particles that land on them.
