Sounds unlikely. If the flow is too high a small piece may tear off. Is the whole head missing or are you just finding a small piece on the sand?

When I knock the lights on in the morning i see that one head is completely retracted and looks as though it has been attacked.
I've lost 2 heads over time through this.

I have it on the sand bed and have recently highered it up to near the top to make sure it's not something in the sand.
I'm really confused cause the rest of the heads are fine for now?

You mean a green coris wrasse? I think it's possible, but I wouldn't pass judgement without seeing the wrasse actually take a bite.

And I have only ever seen the wrasse pick at the rocks never a coral but if was my last hope.
