Some fish develop a taste for it. Not sure what can be done about it, other than moving that fish to a diff tank.

Sucking on it constantly or every now and then?

From my experience every now and then is normal for about half my goldfish, regardless of age, and they do it (plus bumping, rubbing against, etc) to any new goldfish that get added or they haven't seen in a long time (females getting moved into breeding tanks with males, males getting out of different hibernation tanks and back into the pond together.)
