Is there anything in there picking on him and/or making it scared?

I had a Trigger several years ago that would sometimes start doing figure 8's in my tank at top speed. No idea why.

Yes there are lots of live rock that I made tunnels and hiding spaces and the only think might have him like tht is my foxface. When I first added my foxface the angel started to fight with it I think he got stuck by the foxface spines?
