Mine do this when close to spawning, they clean the rock they chose to spawn on, and I do mean CLEAN and make a burrow in the sand. If they close to spawn if you put your hand near the spot they are at they will attack you, just to keep you away

My maroon has done this as well. He dug a nest under a ledge in the back corner all the way down to the glass. It is about 4 inches by 4 inches. My percs don't do this though.

I take it back about my perc. He has started digging a nest too. Not as big as the maroon, but he is only about 2.5 inches where the maroon is about 5.5
