Fish Eat Poop

Not at all. This is common. A goldfish will root around and eat - or try - just about anything they come across. This is how they swallow stones and such!

It may be that there was still some food value left in the waste - so his body will reprocess it again and get more from it.

If not - it will not hurt.

Many fish suck them in and spit them out!

well if your fish dont spit the food back out, this could mean that there are still some nutrients that didnt get fully digested in the poop, so the fish eats it and then the rest of the nutrients get processed. :) this is perfectly normal. :)
