Noticed this last night after lights out. Any informative information on this general discussion about mesentrial filaments is appreciated. Is this just normal behavior?

Picture attached.

That looks more like the antennae from some sort of ornamental shrimp IMO.

Did you feed it recently, sometimes they spit out the food they eat if it is too much and they cannot digest it.

Actually yea I fed them some reef roids earlier that day! Wonder if that's what that is

Do you have any shrimp in your tank right now? A coral trying to eat a molt or parts of a molt is definitely not uncommon.
