Wrasses flashing

Hello,

My wrasses have been flashing (scraping against rocks) in my 90 reef tank, none of the other fish have been flashing or showing any other symptoms of illness. There are no spots or lumps on the wrasses. I have a six line, and a common cleaner. Anyone know what's happening?

my wrasses flash all the time I believe it's so they can find spots that are soft to dive into and hide , really don't want to see him running into a rock wall and going splat , wrasses love diving into the sand bed swimming at high speeds , it's just the lifestyle of a wrasse nothing to be concerned about , one thing to to take into consideration be sure to have a tight fitting lid to prevent escapes as they also love to jump

Awesome, thanks for the info. I have a tight lid, and neither of them have ever tried to jump.
