Hammer Coral Brown Stringy Stuff

I have a hammer coral and I see this brown stringy stuff.. I googled and from what I read this is just poop BUT I want to make sure it is.

As soon as I start typing this the brown stringy stuff got carried away by the flow. No more stringy stuff. This morning I did 25 percent water change with RO/DI water at 1.025/1.026 salinity if that helps.

Sorry I took another look. It looks there's another one but really small. This is how it looks after it expelled the longer stringy stuff

I have seen these on my torches, hammers, and frogspawn. What I have been told is that this was the Coral expelling excess zooxanthellae algae.
