Whats he doing? Yellow Lab digging hole in sand.

So i have a male yellow lab cross cichlid and he is in between juvenile and adult hood. His tank mates are all juveniles. I noticed that he has dug a hole under one of his decorations. He goes down, picks up sand, and comes back up and spits it out. What is he doing?

Their digging will tear up a tank as they get older. With me I have had fake and live plants and I don't in my malawi tank anymore I got tired of cleaning up after the kids ( cichlids) everyday when i got home from work. Be extremely careful when stacking rocks if you have them.
