Not sure i would treat unless you know what your treating for. Sounds like a healthy Blennie to me. The flashing would be a sign of problems but like you said its sometimes which i take to mean not very often. Usually fish do this quite often if there is a problem. Usually with flashing also you will see some outward sign of a problem.
