The larger of the two clown that I've had for the last two year has just become infatuated with a torch coral I bought at the start of this week. I may be worried about nothing but is it normal for a clown to adopt a coral like this and just loll about on top of it with its mouth open?

Both of the clowns I have seem to be quite fond of the hammer coral but this is the first time I've seen this behaviour.

totally normal and very common. the thing to watch is the health of the coral, as the clowns can damage them sometimes.

As above, just watch out for the wellbeing of the torch, some clowns get rather rough with them!!!!
