Sailfin Tang gone bad??

I am hoping someone can tell me this is normal behaviour. I am concerned my tang has taken a liking for corals. It spends plenty of time around the Gondi and just can decided if it is harming it or not. I am close to sending him back to TLS but have become attached as well as he is a beautiful fish.

Any thoughts?

( I will post link to video soon)

I think he's just after algae growth or dead coral tissue; although it's not unheard of for tangs to turn "rogue" and start eating corals.

I think you're fine. If the fish (or something else) was picking at your goni, the goni would retract more or less instantly in my experience.
