Feather Duster spewing small clouds

Not sure if this is a "sick fish" problem or if this is some other normal behavior.
I noticed this morning that the water seems a touch hazy and I can see that my feather duster is "breathing" out small translucent cloudy puffs at regular intervals like breaths on a cold morning.

He's been looking really healthy lately and has slowly bent his tube over the last couple of weeks so that he's sticking straight up.
Does anyone know anything about this behavior?
Could this be related to reproduction? chemical warfare? water quality? etc.?

Water quality was always good but got even better when I put some cheato into a small hang-in breeder box last week

10 gal with Penguin 100 biowheel hob filter, Rio 50 ph, 40w 50/50 pc lighting, 20lbs ls, 8lbs lr.
sg 1.023, ph 8.2, nh3 0ppm, no2 0ppm, no3 0-5ppm, temp 78-80.

U have a male featherduster and he's spawning. He's releasing sperms into the water. Nothing to worry about. If it gets too cloudy, perform a PWC
I'm one of those fishnutz, who are actually nutz.
