Clown behavior

Is it normal for clown fish to rub on the rocks? Mine keeps swimming by and rubbing on a rock... Now they kinda look like they are gardening one o the holey rocks :-/

Sounds like normal clown behavior you shouldn't worry unless it is flashing. Clowns will host some of the strangest things anything from a mag float to an anemone and everything in between. It sounds like it is hosting and they don't need an anemone to host mine has decided it likes my candy canes better than a rbta.
