is my clown hungry or what, help please, is this normal??

hey guys long time no post,

first off my tank survived my vacation and my dad's care

now my two clowns have been pretty much attacking a piece of live rock that show new light purple coralline growth, i don't see any pods but hey what do i know... the big one uses it's body and mouth and the little one uses mostly it's mouth, they're doing little twitches right by it, but then they do that when they're close together so they could just be reacting to each other... ANY THOUGHTS

Second...

I've caught the big on mouthing (gnawing on) a couple of my hairy mushrooms... 8O what's up with this??

any help would be greatly appreciated

dena

Mine are hosting in a hairy mushroom so yours may be setting up housekeeping. I've never seen or heard of them eating coraline so I wouldn't worry that that is what they are doing.

Send a message via AIM to AR15 guy
Could be a long shot but are you sure there are no eggs on the rock anywhere?

It is common for the clowns to clean the spot before the eggs are layed down.
