green chromis acting like a cleaner wrasse?

Has anyone ever heard of a green chromis acting like a cleaner wrasse? My yellow tang is swimming up to him and seems to be offering its side, the little chromis looked like he was either trying to bite the tang...or picking somthing off him.
I don't see anything, and the tangs not flashing. He just keeps swimming up to the chromis and offering his side. It's the smallest chromis that's pecking.
Think I should put the tang in QT just in case?
