green poop from oscars?

just noticed green poop floating at the top of the tank...

diet consists of hikari pellets, frozen bloodworms, and flakes occasionally. there are three plants in the tank.

poop has never been green before nor have i noticed any change in poop color/appearance lately.

any ideas? should i be concerned?

They have to be getting their greens from somewhere, but in general green poop is not a sign of anything, at least that I know of. I'll bet they are munching on the plants at least a little. Go ahead and...um.. net it outta there

that is totally normal. The Hikari pellets are green.
My O's poop is either brown or green, depending on what they have been eating.
