Puffer poo

Title got your attention didn't it?

Anyway, I mostly feed my DFP mysis shrimp, and I noticed that when he "does his business" it looks like there are actually full shrimp sitting on the bottom of the tank. I only feed him what he will eat so it wouldn't be extra from feeding.

I was wondering if this means I'm overfeeding, or is this normal? I've seen him go up to these shrimp and eat it, ewww, then he spits it out.

Is this normal? Do they extract what they need and then poop it out as it pretty much looks like going in?

The fish is in a hospital tank treating ich with hypsoalinity if that makes any difference..
