Hello, and welcome to the site. It sounds to me like it was just some fecal matter you found - my tiger sal's waste looks very much like what you described. As far as letting it out of the tank for a run, as long as you have a good sized tank that should'nt be neccesary. Being amphibians they can dry out/dessicate rapidly, so be careful. I hope you find this site informative, and ask whatever questions you may have
Heather
