Milky stringy substance floating all over tank.

What is it? It's like certain corals threw up. What does it mean?

If some of my corals get stressed the slime out and it looks just like that. Mainly for me it's a pagoda cup, pineapple tree, and my plating Monti that slime. Hasn't happened in a really long time, but when i was still moving stuff around and placing corals it would happen.
