Could be the work of one of more boring worms and the brown stuff is their ejection of their drilling efforts. Many times I see puffs of brown stuff coming from the LR, but I know that it is just the worms at work.

Well, I suppose you can clean it up...and that's good...but it seems a nearly impossible to maintain that kind of cleanliness in the tank.

You know what they say..."one animal's poop is another animal's breakfast" (OK, so they don't say that very much) Some other creature will process that away to the ecosystem.

Leave it...
It'll all take care of itself...
Make sure you have some snails and hermits and it'll all work out !
Unless you have a agressive tank then your snails and hermits will be snack food...
FWIW the turbo snails make BIG POOP !
