Scooter dragonet

Hi is it normal for my scooter dragonet to cover itself with sand and just have its head and top fin sticking out when it goes to sleep.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

They can be difficult to get on prepared foods. They are dragonets like the mandarin, they eat pods usually.

Do you think it is normal that every time my scooter goes on top of my goniopora that it closes up.

Most corals will close up if something is on it. Unless its all the time I wouldnt worry bout it.
