Slime Coat?

I saw these at the bottom of Stumpy's hospital tank. Is it his slime coat? Sorry the image is crappy. I had a hard time getting my camera to focus on it.

Well this is in a hospital tank. So, no plant matter, food is always eaten up; anything not eaten is removed. Certainly not poo. It's very much like a ribbon. Thin, wide/curly.
