Hermit eating “something”

Hello,
I got two electric blue hermit crabs yesterday. One was on the house cause he wasn’t doing too hot and I didn’t mind one dying cause free shell and there’s nothing else in the tank. Fed the other guy last night with that dried seaweed stuff and he’s been quite active. I’ve been watching him all day cause he’s rather nice to look at, but when I left my tank for maybe 30 minutes, there was this fluffy white/orange/pink substance strewn about. He was nibbling on a big piece. Which he’s finished off now.
what is this substance? The other hermit crab? Other miscellaneous goop?
I haven’t removed it because he seems to enjoy it, but what’s the deal?
I apologize for the photo quality

are there any fish in the tank that could have eaten the crab?

No, only thing in this tank is the two crabs.
