Does it come out when you feed?

Mine generally hide in a cave when the lights are on, but do come out when I feed and quite often jump on the back of my hand and pull on hairs when I reach in the tank.

My peppermint is in the rocks all through the day and comes out only for feeding. When I turn the lights off at night about 10 minutes later he comes out of the rocks on the front and on the sand.
