My Fox is hosting my leather!?

Just as the title says, it seems my Foxface is hosting my leather coral. Is this normal behavior or possibly something else going on? This isn't something new, I've been noticing this behavior for over 2-3 weeks now.

It's been recorded that some fish will host sessile inverts like clownfish. Bangaii cardinals and some damsels have been known to host anemones. Your foxface might just be an odd one.
