Could just be your feeding them not enough, in which case they are extracting every bit of goodness out of what feeding the have and are becoming scavengers.

they are getting fed 6 times a day as much as they can eat

If they are feeding and looking good then just assume it's down to the excess mucous production from the gut to counter the solid granule food.
I assume they are fine otherwise???

yes theyre fine otherwise! i have isolated them from my centralised system just to be on the safe side!

If you are still worried, interpet no.9 will sort, but from their otherwise healthy manner it's probably best to leave them well alone, I don't think you will find its contageous,
